Features of planetary gearboxes:
- planetary gears offer the advantage of very high power transmission capabilities per unit volume of space and weight
- low backlash facilitates the need for precise positioning in automation applications
- gearboxes perform the important functions of reducing speed and multiplying torque
- inertia ratio of load and motor can be matched to enable servomotors to operate with high dynamics of the drive
- low backlash also reduces shock loads in dynamic reversing applications.
- planetary gearboxes have high mechanical efficiency.
- maintenance free
