Custom planetary gears

“Your idea – our drive”: our drive solutions have set standards for numerous applications and sectors according to this motto. Our customers appreciate us as experienced development  partners who deliver a technically and commercially convincing result.
Many innovative special systems based on planetary gears have already been created in this way – for example our hub gearbox systems for the intralogistics sector.

You benefit from our experience: Because no application is so special that we would not have the right solution – whether a complete custom engineered new development or an easy adption of our standard planetary gears.

Individualized design for your requirements

There are many ways to influence the technical and economical properties of a gearbox. It is here that an old engineering rule of thumb applies: “Not as good as possible, but as good as is
necessary!” At Framo Morat, we have been working in accordance with this motto for decades when it comes to designing and developing individual drive solutions.

Gear types, materials, bearings, lubricants and, not least, the installation dimensions are essential factors with which the performance data of the planetary gears can be adapted to the respective application requirement profiles. The options given here serve as an overview of the different adjusting screws and their effects.

In the design of your customized planetary gear, you will benefit from our expertise in gear technology, our know-how in combination with tried-and-tested materials, as well as our decades-long experience in developing customer-specific drive solutions. We would be glad to speak with you. Contact us directly with any wishes or requests.

Planetary gears and more – your application is our priority

From project development to serial production, here you get the planetary gear that is perfectly tailored to your application. Neither over- nor under-sized, no compromise in matters of technical requirements, interface or cost… just exacly what you need.


Project development

Based on your specifications, we develop the optimum technical and cost-effective solution for the defined application


Application expertise

We have already developed and produced countless drive solutions – from worm, spur or planetary gears to complex drive system


Systems competence

You benefit from our experience gained from the technical implementation of drive solutions for many different industries.


Quality assurance

We ensure reproducible results at the highest quality level by means of inline measurements and visual inspections.


Depth of production

Turning, milling, gear cutting, squaring up, countersinking, hardening, grinding – we produce all components, from the individual gearwheel to the complete drive, in our own workshops.


Serial production

After successful quality inspections, we mount the components in separate assembly cells – ready for delivery.

Application example hub gearbox systems

Planetary gears with taper roller bearings are frequently used in applications in which high radial loads occur. With its longtime experience in gear and drive engineering, Framo Morat has developed a hub drive system based on a standard planetary gear. The custom design, which permits higher radial loads, reduces the total length of the gearbox by more than 40%. The use of standardized ball bearings contributes to cost-effectiveness.
The wheel hub drive is based on a planetary gear with a 40 mm diameter and a gear ratio of 5:1. Taking account of the application-specific loads and requirements, as well as the desired gearbox ratios, almost all standard planetary gears can be used for such a drive system.
The efficient and compact wheel hub drive is used in numerous intralogistics applications, for example in warehouse shuttle systems or automated guided vehicles (AGV).
