PIC Design manufactures precision spur gears in metric and inch sizes for clients in a variety of industries. Spur gears are the most common type of gears; cylindrical in shape, with teeth on the outside of the cylinder and parallel to the axis. With capabilities for segment and internal spur gear configurations, our high-volume manufacturing expertise enables us to satisfy difficult orders to meet your toughest precision gearing challenges.
Spur Gears are Offered in the Following Hub Styles:
Pin Hub (G-Series): The hub has a tapped hole and a sub-drill to enable pinning to the shaft.
Split Hub (H-Series): The hub is slotted, requiring a clamp (L1-series) for attachment to the shaft.
Hubless (J-Series): Gears have a standard precision bore for press-fit to a hub or cluster gear.
Our spur gears are used in a variety of industries including, aerospace and military instrumentation, medical and dental, oil and gas exploration, robotics, optical and industrial controls. These gears are used for precision positioning, rotational drives for encoders and other similar light-duty applications. We can manufacture spur gears to meet the latest AGMA/ISO specifications, up to the equivalent of AGMA Q14 per AGMA 390.03.
Standard Spur Gears
We offer an extensive array of standard external spur gears for you to choose from. Our standard gear styles and quality level options are ideal for a variety of products and will meet your project’s parameters and constraints.
Standard materials options are: 303 stainless steel spur gears, 2024 aluminum spur gears, Acetal (Delrin®) spur gears, Bronze Alloy 464 spur gears, and 17-4 PH stainless steel spur gears.
When it comes to your gear needs, work with the spur gear manufacturer that has over 65 years of experience: PIC Design.
Custom Spur Gears
If you don’t see any standard gears that fit your needs, we also offer custom spur gears. We have the capability to produce gears with non-standard pressure angles, pitches, materials and finishes. We can also customize your spur gears with modified bores, sectoring and face- and cross-holes. The following specifications define our standard selection and routine customization options:
- Diametral Pitch: 16 to 120
- Bores: 1/8” to 3/8”
- Module: .25mm to 1.0mm
- Bores: 3mm to 10mm
- Face Width: 1/8’’ to 3/8’’
- Quality Level: AGMA Q10 to Q14
- Pitch Diameter Range: 0.1” to 5’’
