Matex's patented design ensures the planets in the Matex planetary gears always share equal loads, resulting in 98% efficiency at a
single reduction with minimal heat loss and noise. At double and triple stage reduction, efficiency is minimally impacted operating at 95%
and 92% respectively. For each additional reduction step, efficiency loss is only about 3%.
The result of an extensive research and development program the Matex industrial planetary gearing system, planetary gearbox and planetary gear sets offer the design engineer unlimited performance possibilities.
The graphic below is a breakdown of each portion of our product numbers for our planetary gears. The structure of the product numbers is derived from different measurements. The graphic below explains what each section means.
Matex uses several different materials in our low-cost plastic gears.
Matex's Sintered Metal gear provides an attractive option for those who have torque requirements.
For those customers with higher torque requirements, Matex offers our steel Planetary gears.
