Spur gears are a cylindrical shaped toothed component used in industrial equipment to transfer mechanical motion as well as control speed, power, and torque. These simple gears are cost-effective, durable, reliable and provide a positive, constant speed drive to facilitate daily industrial operations.

At belongear, we manufacture our own tooling, allowing us the flexibility to fabricate standard or custom cold rolled spur gears designed to meet exact specifications across a wide range of industrial applications.

Spur gears are one of the most popular types of precision cylindrical gears. These gears feature a simple design of straight, parallel teeth positioned around the circumference of a cylinder body with a central bore that fits over a shaft. In many variants, the gear is machined with a hub which thickens the gear body around the bore without changing the gear face. The central bore can also be broached as to allow the spur gear to fit onto a spline or keyed shaft.

Spur gears are used in mechanical applications to increase or decrease the speed of a device or multiply torque by transmitting motion and power from one shaft to another through a series of mated gears.
