Planetary gears given a flexibility boost

ZF’s PG low backlash, planetary gearheads combine all the traditional benefits of planetary gearbox design with enhanced flexibility for added convenience and installation cost savings.

There are two attachment options: a shrunk fit connection with clamping element on a flat shaft, or a machined shaft with key way and feather key. Supports that cater for high radial loads allow belt pulleys to be connected, and the gearheads can be mounted in any orientation.

The gearheads are available in both single and twin stage unit variants in a range of ratios between 4:1 and 100:1. They are rated for motor input speeds from 3000rpm to 10,000rpm as standard, and fit a wide range of motor frame sizes.
