How to use "Spur gear" in context?

In manufacturing, spur gears are a type of gear that transmit rotary motion. They are used in a variety of applications, including medical equipment, Agricultrue, and industry.

The basic principle of a spur gear is that the teeth of a gear mesh more tightly when they are closer to one another. This allows the gears to rotate more quickly, without the need for extra components. They are typically manufactured from metal, with teeth that are shaped to reduce friction.

The teeth of a spur gear must be cut to the correct shape and size, and fitted together perfectly.
