Matex Gears Offers Standard and Custom Made Planetary Gears

matex gears custom made planetary gears with continuous research and development to satisfy customers needs

History of Matex Gear

Matex Gears was established in 1921 in Osaka, Japan, and they are currently one of the largest manufacturers of gears in Japan. It wasn't until 1980 when Matex Gears expanded to the United States. 

However, in 1781, James Watt, a rather famous Scottish engineer, and designer, created the planetary gear design. Though the interesting thing about that is that there were no great innovations in his design for nearly 200 years. That is until Matex Gears started with a new patented process where they made a modular design by adding a roller and ring mechanism.

This new planetary gear innovation created by Matex Gears helped lower the cost of planetary gears, and it helped to create a more efficient unit, 98% efficiency.

Matex Gears Now

We at Matex Gears have not stopped this continuous improvement; in fact, we are always working with research and design groups to create better and more efficient gears for our customers. 

In the very near future, we will be unveiling some of the newest gear we have been working on, such as a line of high precision gears and a line of really high R.B.M. capability gears. These are two types of gear our customers are asking for more recently, so we decided to get to testing new ways to make this happen for them. 

What Kind of Gears Do You Need?

Our R&D is driven by the demand for our customer's needs. If there is a gear that you need but isn't on the market, let us know, and we would be happy to try to create it for you.
