The PLANUREX® 2 series is a byword for unparalleled success. It is the best-selling industrial planetary gear unit series in the world. These gear units have not only proven their worth more than 50,000 times over the course of many years in a large number of applications and under the most severe operating conditions, their high quality has also allowed them to set global standards.

The finely spaced series includes nominal torques up to 1,680,000 Nm. 13 designs, 21 frame sizes and a large number of different models due to various output shafts, conformity to different motor standards, application-specific auxiliary equipment and load-sharing options permit a large number of possible applications to be catered for.

The modular design allows a large number of basic components to be standardized, in particular planetary stages and housing components as well as drive- and output-side components. The resulting reduction in complexity makes it possible to produce economic batch sizes at a high quality standard.

The PLANUREX gear units’ robust design guarantees process stability above all. Rely on the PLANUREX 2 to guarantee maximum operational reliability.
