Spur gears is a type of gear which transmit power in applications utilizing parallel shafts. They are also used as fuel pumps. They connect parallel shafts, have involute teeth that are parallel to the shaft and can have internal or external teeth. They cause no external thrust between gears. They are inexpensive to manufacture. They give lower but satisfactory performance. They are used when shaft rotates in the same plane.
