Basic design of planetary gear units
The essential design of a planetary gear unit includes a sun gear, a ring gear and many planetary gears. The planetary gears are backed by the ring gear and rotate around sunlight gear. This operating basic principle gave the name to this kind of gear unit. The apparatus unit’s drive and output functions can be performed by sunlight gear, the housing or the planetary carrier, based on the design.

In the most typical design, the epicyclic gear unit, the drive function is performed by sunlight gear, the output function by the planetary carrier, and the housing is stationary. This design includes a positive impact on the internal forces in the apparatus unit. The strain distribution over several planetary gears allows high torques to become transmitted in a compact design. The utilization of helical gears reduces the running noises.
