Planetary Gearboxes –EX
The EX Planetary Gearbox range is stocked in the UK for same-day or next-day delivery. Planetary gearboxes are also known by the term epicyclic gearboxes. This description comes from the outer planetary gears ‘orbiting’ around the central sun gear. The ancient Greeks developed the idea of epicycles which later gave them the means to predict planetary orbital paths.
We can assemble gearboxes capable of transmitting torque in excess of 15,000Nm.
- Planetary Gearbox
- Ratios up to 10,000:1
- Output torque up to 1,500,000Nm
- Input power up to 6500kW
Planetary Gearboxes are particularly suited to high torque / low speed applications where shock loads are anticipated. The planetary gear design leads to only 2% efficiency losses per gear set. STM grind and de-burr all gears prior to assembly to increase efficiency and reduce maintenance requirements.
