Fundamental design of planetary gear units
The essential design of a planetary gear unit consists of 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 gave the name to this kind of gear unit. The gear unit’s drive and output functions can be performed by the sun gear, the casing or the planetary carrier, based on the design.

In the most typical design, the epicyclic gear unit, the drive function is conducted by sunlight gear, the output function by the planetary carrier, and the housing is stationary. This design has a positive influence on the inner forces in the gear unit. The strain distribution over several planetary gears allows high torques to end up being transmitted in a compact design. The usage of helical gears decreases the running noises.

High torque could be transmitted
Drive and output run synchronously
Coaxial design
Minimal radial backlash
