The use of planetary gear units in the field of power transmission is the modern answer to the demand for compactness, constructive simplicity and product reliability. The different components are adapted to each other to guarantee flawless operation with the highest industrial safety. The Planetary Drives' modular construction permits the coupling of bevel gears, worm gears, hydraulic brakes and a variety of input shafts to the planetary units, as well as providing for a wide choice of coupling flanges for hydraulic or electric motors.
The most important characteristics and advantages of planetary drives:

PG/PGA planetary drives are made of 60% steel, about 35% cast iron and a lower percentage of aluminium, copper, rubber and brass. These percentages vary depending on the product configurations.
Another advantage of the planetary drives' modular construction is that various stages, in different sizes, can be mounted in series to offer a wide range of reduction ratios. Planetary Drive reduction ratios range from 3:1 to 7:1 on single-stage drives up to 10,000:1 and more on 5-stage drives. The wide selection of output shafts and flanges simplifies the reduction unit mounting operation on industrial machinery or plants.
