How to Calculate Planetary Gear Reduction and the Excellence of Our Planetary Gears

Understanding the Calculation of Planetary Gear Reduction

To calculate planetary gear reduction, you need to understand the basic structure of a planetary gear set. It consists of a sun gear, planet gears, and a ring gear. The gear reduction ratio is determined by the relationship between the number of teeth on the different gears. The formula for calculating gear reduction ratio in a planetary gear set is: (Ring Gear Teeth + Sun Gear Teeth) / Sun Gear Teeth.
