small planetary gearbox

A planetary gearbox identifies a gear system where one or more ‘planet’ gears rotate around a central ‘sun’ gear. Typically, a world carrier is driven by the insight torque which rotates the planets around a set outer ring (sometimes referred to as the annulus). This in turn drives the sun gear which then provides the output torque. However there are types of the other combinations, such as the sun gear being fixed and the band providing output torque.

The main benefit of planetary gearboxes are their high power transmission efficiencies. Typicially this could be around simply 3% per stage. Further to this, the high effiency is definitely delivered regardless of the compact style giving a large torque to size/weight ratio. Some of this is thanks to the load sharing that occurs over the multiple planet gears.
