Low Rate, High Torque Motors
Most of the hydraulic motors used for propel motors are low-speed, high-torque (LSHT) motors. Velocity and torque are related by power:
Power = Speed x Torque
That means if you want to boost torque for confirmed horsepower, we have to reduce speed:
Torque = Power / Speed
Hence the word “low-speed, high-torque.” One way of reducing swiftness involves the use of planetary gears. They provide speed reduction which outcomes in torque multiplication. Plus they do this all in a compact package when compared to gear and pinion velocity reducers, and which means they have exceptional torque density. Below you can see a planetary gear program from a final drive motor.

Planetary Gear Systems
In your final drive gear hub, you will usually have two sets of three planetary gears that rotate in regards to a sun gear. In addition they mesh with a stationary ring gear. The upper set of planetary gears are held collectively by a carrier, as demonstrated in the picture above. As you can plainly see, all three gears are arranged the same distance from each other. At the guts is a place for sun equipment to mesh and offer input to the system.
How Final Drive Planetary Gears Work
Let’s take a simplified look in the way the planetary gears in your final drive work. Insight power causes sunlight equipment to rotate at high rate. The planets mesh with both sun gear and the ring equipment. They orbit the sun equipment while rolling around the band gear. The effect is low acceleration, high torque output rotation.
Maintaining the Planetary Gearbox
On your final drive motor, the planetary gearbox needs equipment oil, also called gear lube. It is vital to check the apparatus oil amounts about every 100 hours and change the gear oil one per year. If you don’t modify out your gear oil, you’ll finish up with a thick sludge that will lead to excessive use of your planetary gear system. At Texas Final Drive, we make reference to that as “pudding.”
Another key aspect of keeping your planetary gearbox can be fixing any leaking seals immediately. If a seal is degraded enough to permit oil to leak out, after that that means dirt and dust can make their way in. You do not want your gears appear to be the gritty mess shown below.
Your planetary gearbox is a key component of your final drive. If it fails, you won’t have the ability to generate the torque you should keep your machine shifting. Remember to check and modify the gear essential oil and don’t ignore leaks. Also keep in mind that pudding and grit are not what you need in your gearbox!
The present day and innovative design, the compact construction and the excellent performance characteristics of the PGR/PGW series of gear units make these especially suitable for generating rubber tired or tracked self-propelled vehicles.
