Epicyclic drive

Epicyclic drive, also known as planetary gearbox, is a gear system that has a central sun gear surrounded by multiple planet gears and an outer ring gear. The planet gears rotate around the sun gear while at the same time rotating around the central axis of the system. The outer ring gear serves as the stationary boundary of the gear train.

Applications in thermoforming

Epicyclic drive is widely used in thermoforming machines due to its compact size, high torque density, and high efficiency. In thermoforming, the epicyclic drive is typically used to drive the roll stack, which consists of multiple rolls that are used to form the plastic sheet into the desired shape.

Advantages of using epicyclic drive in thermoforming

  • High torque density allows for smaller gearbox size, which saves space in the machine design
  • High efficiency improves energy efficiency and reduces operating costs
  • Low backlash provides precise control of the roll stack
  • Quiet operation reduces noise pollution in the workplace
  • Easy maintenance and long service life

Epicyclic drive in comparison with other gear systems

Compared with other gear systems commonly used in thermoforming machines, such as parallel shaft helical gears and bevel gears, epicyclic drive has the following advantages:

  • Higher torque density
  • Higher efficiency
  • Lower backlash
  • Smaller size and lighter weight
  • More versatile in design and configuration

Conclusion

Epicyclic drive is a reliable and efficient gear system that is widely used in thermoforming machines. Its high torque density, high efficiency, low backlash, and compact size make it an ideal choice for driving the roll stack in thermoforming. Compared with other gear systems, epicyclic drive offers greater advantages in terms of performance, versatility, and economy.
