Planetary gearing creates compact in-line gearboxes that have high efficiency up to 97%. Servo planetary and low cost ranges are designed for direct connection of servo motors with ratios 3 to 100 and output torques up to 1000Nm.
MPR and MPG ranges have particularly low backlash.
Industrial planetary gearboxes suit higher torques and medium to high gear ratios. Both free shaft and motorised inputs are available.
Robust general purpose planetary gearboxes with free shaft or motor flange inputs. Rated torques 600 to 50000Nm. Ratios 3.4 to 1575 Types P,MP, LP, PF, MPF
Vogel Antriebstechnik are an established specialist manufacturer for gears with precision and long life. They specialise in planetary gearboxes in a range 40 to 26000Nm and spiral bevel gearboxes in a range 15 to 9000Nm. Vogel are a long term partner to Lenze and Techdrives.
Vogel offer gearboxes designed for precision and long life. Planetary gearboxes can be supplied with backlash certified as below 1 arc mins. Backlash is measured with 2% of nominal torque. Gearbox life can be 10000 hours maintenance free. Vogel gearboxes are commonly found in robotics, packaging and print machinery, machine tools and in the food industry. More recently Vogel gearboxes have been used for both pitch and yaw drives on wind turbines with rated torques up to 150 000Nm
Techdrives worm geared motors are a compact and adaptable solution well suited to intermittent drives.
