At Matex Gears, we offer many gears in various sizes, materials, and qualities, so we put our product codes into place to make it easy for our customers to get the gears they need!
The first part of the product code is a number that shows the outside diameter of the gear; in our example, it is 75. We have gears in OD sizes from 26 mm, 35 mm, 54 mm, 75 mm, 85 mm, 120 mm, 200 mm.
The next number is the gear ration; in our example, it is a 4. We make them in 3:1, 4, 5:1, and 7:1. We can make any combination of those to achieve the right ratio for your application.
The next step is identifying the material of the gear. In our example, the letter is an M, which stands for all steel. You could also see an S for sintered metal and a P for plastic.
Next is the input shape. We have various input shapes, male and female, and shafts.
We also have various output shapes, male and female, and shaft.
The last number in the planetary gear product code is the tooth width.
