Planetary gear units: Proven gear technology for the highest demands

Planetary gear units

Powerful and compact

    BHS planetary gears from Voith convince with high speeds and torques and efficient long-term performance. We have more experience than any other manufacturer in building planetary gear units. Built according to the Stoeckicht principle, they enable ideal load equalization between the sun wheel as well as planetary and ring gears. This ensures beneficial stress on components and greatly reduces power loss in the gear unit. You thus benefit not only from a long service life, but also from a reduction of operating costs in the long term.
