Types of Gear Reducers

The types of gear reducers include:

Planetary Gear Reducer

A planetary gear reducer contains a sun gear, planet gears, and a huge ring gear. The output shaft, inner gear ring, and sun gear support the planet gears. The sun gear in the middle of the gear configuration is driven by the power, which causes the planetary gears to rotate in lockstep with the inner gear ring.

The planet gears rotate the output shaft attached to the output power. A planetary reducer has a long service life, large carrying capacity, and high output torque, and it is compact, quiet, and efficient. In addition, it has power splitting and multiple teeth meshing, making it a versatile reduction.

Helical Gear Reducer

Helical gear reducers are another type of space-saving gear reducer with great overload capacity and durability. They're employed for forward speeds with a medium to high gear train.

Helical gears' tooth traces are slanted, resulting in a higher meshing ratio that reduces noise and increases strength. Their synchromesh design provides increased surface area and never disengages.

The helical cut of helical gears has an angular cut that allows the teeth to be longer while maintaining the same number of teeth as a spur gear.

Magnetic Gear Reducers

Magnetic gear reducers are a type of gear reducer that uses magnetic attraction rather than physical contact to reduce torque. They don't have gear teeth; instead, they use opposing magnets that oppose each other, allowing them to apply pressure from any angle.

Magnetic gears work the same way as traditional gears, but they don't touch; thus, they're not impacted by wear. Magnetic gears also don't require any lubrication or sealed barriers. Instead, they are made with permanent magnets or electromagnets.

Spur Gear Reducers

Spur gear reducers feature teeth that are parallel to the axis and have straight teeth. They are the most popular and widely used gear reducer, and they can contain multiple gears with different gear ratios. Spur gear gearboxes are extremely efficient, have little backlash, and are durable and stable.

Bevel Gear Reducers

An angular bell crank on bevel gear reducers allows users to adjust the system's rotation from transverse to longitudinal. They're small and powerful, with three-phase asynchronous motors, synchronous motors, and asynchronous servo motors providing the power.

Bevel gear reducers, like helical and hypoid gear reducers, work quietly while providing excellent performance and energy economy.
