What Does a Planetary Gear Do?

A planetary gear system, also known as an epicyclic gear system, is a gear system consisting of one or more outer gears, or planet gears, revolving around a central, or sun gear. Typically, the system includes a ring gear enclosing the system which meshes with the planet gears. Planetary gears are used in various applications due to their advantages in terms of torque, speed, and smoothness of operation.

Different Types of Planetary Gears and Their Features

There are several types of planetary gear sets, each with unique features and benefits:

Single-Stage Planetary Gear Set

This is the simplest type of planetary gear set, consisting of a sun gear, a planet gear, and a ring gear. It is known for its compactness and high power transmission efficiency.

Multi-Stage Planetary Gear Set

These are used when a high gear ratio is required. They consist of two or more planetary gear stages in series.

Selecting the Right Planetary Gears

When selecting a planetary gear set, there are several parameters to consider:
