Carson Manufacturing Designs Planetary Gear Reduction Systems For Your Success

If you’re looking for a high-performance product, then we’re here to tell you that the search stops now. At Carson Manufacturing, we are proud to craft new and creative solutions for applications requiring specific planetary gear reduction components. Gearboxes have many moving parts, and customers often have concerns about improper sizing and equipment malfunction. That’s why we use planetary gear reduction systems designed to operate up to 50 percent more efficiently than other gearbox designs. This well-balanced solar system consists of three equally distributed gears that can help you avoid mechanical problems in the future. With the centrally located sun gear transmitting torque to the fixed planet gears, the moveable carrier will orbit the ring gear, which will form the output shaft and provide axle relief. We offer industry-leading products to ensure all your planetary gear reduction needs are met, including the Precision Series, Eliminator Series, “S” Series, Right Angle, and custom planetary gearboxes.

  • We don’t charge a design fee for custom line drawings and calculations
  • Our products are the result of more than 40 years of industry research, development, and testing
  • We can produce planetary gear reduction ratios up to 10,000:1.
  • Our products arrive on time and budget.
  • Our planetary gearboxes are designed and manufactured 100% in the USA
  • We can engineer planetary gear reduction systems to mount practically any motor for any ratio, configuration, and size.

Carson Manufacturing Designs Planetary Gear Reduction Systems For Your Success

1. Do you need to change the speed function?

If you answered yes to this question, then you’re in the right place. Planetary gearboxes can help you increase and decrease your equipment speed. With our planetary gear reduction systems, you can reduce the speed to maximize your torque output and ensure it’s the correct speed. This is because torque speed is typically the inverse of speed function. Our gear reducers can also provide more axle relief because the load is shared among multiple planet gears. So, when you invest in one of our planetary gear reduction systems, you receive efficient and energy-saving speeds in return.

2. What ratio do you need?

Determining your gear ratio is essential in deciding which planetary gear reduction system is suitable for you. To calculate the gear ratio, you need to count the number of teeth on the sun and ring gears. Next, add the two numbers together, and the sum will equal the number of planetary gear teeth. You then need to calculate the gear ratio depending on whether the carrier acts as the input, output, or if it’s standing still. At Carson Manufacturing, we can help you decide which planetary gear reduction system will work best with your gear ratio. We offer standard ratios from 3:1 to 100:1 and can also produce ratios up to 10,000:1 for specific programming.

3. How much available space is there?

Epicyclic gear systems are often used when space and weight are issues, but reduction and high torque are required. We have developed revolutionary, space-saving gearboxes for startup companies whose products were named TIME’s Best Inventions of 2019 and custom gearheads for cancer research. With this in mind, our customers have come to rely on us for our compact and low-noise planetary gear systems.

4. What is the temperature operating range?

While searching for a planetary gear reduction system, there are many factors to consider, including operating temperature. Planetary gear reducers need stable work environments to increase life expectancy and avoid excessive wear. When the air channel is blocked or axial forces are too heavy, the temperate could rise suddenly, malfunctioning the device. At Carson Manufacturing, we offer products built to withstand operating temperature ranges from -20°F to 250°F.

5. How can I benefit from a custom design?

Many epicyclic gear systems require custom configurations, lengths, and sizes. With this in mind, customers often need to pay for programs such as Fusion 360, which can be time-consuming. At Carson Manufacturing, we can save you time and energy by providing custom line drawings at no cost. This way, you can integrate more into your planetary gear reduction system and get the most out of your design.
