Flexible pin

Do not fight with flexibility, use it!

Flexible pin technology is applied in epicyclic gears with multi-satellite planetary arrangement and represents key design feature for high power density and compact dimensions. Equal load sharing between planets is enabled through controlled flexibility provided by Orbital2 patented flexible pin.

Key features:

  • increased lifetime of gears and bearings
  • shock load resistant
  • 40-50% gearbox weight reduction in comparison with conventional gearboxes of same power
