Planetary gearboxes are a cut above other gearbox types, thanks to a long list of advantages that includes exceptional power density, speed and space savings. But when it comes to high torque, precision, repeatability and backlash-free operation, not all planetary gearboxes are the same.
A new white paper, Planetary Gearbox Considerations for High-Performance Applications, explains why higher-quality planetary gearboxes are often necessary. It also provides an overview of the features that set a top-quality planetary gearbox apart, using Redex planetary gear reducers as examples. With the proper planetary gearbox, you can avoid lost motion or backlash issues in your gearing system.
