What is the planetary gearbox?
A simple planetary gear set consists of three main components.
1. Centrally located sun gear (center gear).
2. Multiple planetary gears.
3. Ring gear (external gear).
The three components make up one step within the planetary gearbox. For higher rates, we can offer double or triple stages.
Planetary gearboxes can be driven by electric motors, hydraulic motors, or gasoline or diesel combustion engines.
The load on the sun gear is distributed across several planetary gearboxes that can be used to drive the outer ring, or shaft, or spindle. The central sun gear receives high-speed, low-torque input. The drives several rotating external gears that increase torque.
A simple design is a very efficient and effective way to transfer power from the motor to the output. About 97% of the energy input goes to the output.
