Types of Spur Gears
Here are some examples of spur gears we can manufacture:
- Internal spur gear: One of our primary offerings is internal spur gear. Its teeth are cut on the gears blank’s bore. It has a smooth surface finish, and its gears run in the same direction when in mesh.
- External spur gear: The gear’s teeth are on the exterior surface, so these rotate in the opposite direction when it meshes with another external spur gear.
- Planetary spur gear drive: Also known as epicyclic gearing, it consists of sun gear, external spur gear, planet gears, and ring gear. Due to its distribution, these are more rugged than other types of spur gears.
- Rack and pinion: A rack-and-pinion spur gear aims to change the rotational motion into linear. It has a hefty load capacity and no length limit, which is why it’s one of the most common types that numerous industries need.
