Spur Gear Transmission Systems for Industrial Applications

Spur Gear Transmission

Spur gear transmission is common in mechanical reduction devices and is often used in industrial machinery and mechanical equipment to reduce the speed of rotational output and increase torque. It consists of a series of gears, including a central gear (sun gear), surrounding gears (planet gears), and an outer gear (planet carrier). The planet gears are fixed on the planet carrier and rotate around the sun gear.

The working principle of the spur gear planetary reducer is to transmit power from the sun gear to the planetary gears, thereby driving the output shaft. Due to the rotational motion of the planetary gears, a larger reduction ratio and higher torque output can be achieved. This type of reducer is typically more compact than traditional parallel shaft reducers and is capable of handling higher loads.

Spur gear planetary reducers are widely used in thread processing machines, turret lathes, sawmills, extruders, industrial machinery, automation equipment, robots, jet processing machines, hydraulic generator sets, tower cranes and other fields. In applications requiring precise control of speed and torque.
