Fundamental design of planetary gear units
The basic design of a planetary gear unit contains a sun gear, a ring gear and many planetary gears. The planetary gears are backed by the ring equipment and rotate around the sun gear. This operating principle provided the name to this kind of gear unit. The gear unit’s drive and output functions can be performed by sunlight gear, the housing or the planetary carrier, depending on the design.

In the most typical design, the epicyclic gear unit, the drive function is conducted by the sun gear, the output function by the planetary carrier, and the housing is stationary. This design includes a positive impact on the inner forces in the gear unit. The strain distribution over many planetary gears allows high torques to be transmitted in a concise design. The utilization of helical gears decreases the running noises.
