PG Series High Precision Low Noise Cycloidal Helical Gear Planetary Gearbox



A planetary gearbox is an instrument with the output and input shafts aligned. A planetary gearbox is employed to transmit the greatest torque in the most compact form (introduced as the torque density).

With its intrinsic cylindrical assembling and in-line shafting, planetary gearing is always provided as the compact alternative to normal pinion-and-gear reducers. Being suited for a broad range of usages –from bulldozer power trains to electric screwdrivers– these sets are heavy contenders when weight and space versus torque and reduction are chief concerns. We require details to understand their function fully. Examining the mechanics and construction of a planetary gearbox reveals some of the less-obvious features that come into play.
