Basic design of planetary gear units
The basic design of a planetary gear unit includes a sun gear, a ring gear and many planetary gears. The planetary gears are supported by the ring gear and rotate around the sun gear. This operating basic principle offered the name to this type of gear unit. The gear unit’s drive and result functions can be carried out by the sun gear, the casing or the planetary carrier, depending on the design.

In the most typical design, the epicyclic gear unit, the drive function is performed by the sun gear, the output function by the planetary carrier, and the housing is stationary. This design includes a positive impact on the internal forces in the apparatus unit. The strain distribution over several planetary gears allows high torques to be transmitted in a concise design. The usage of helical gears reduces the running noises.

High torque could be transmitted
Drive and output operate synchronously
Coaxial design
