Do not fight flexibility, use it!
Flexible pin is an ultimate technology applied in epicyclic gears with multi-satellite planetary arrangement. It is a key design feature for high power density and compact dimensions. Equal load sharing between planets is enabled through controlled flexibility. The result is a heavy-duty planetary gearbox.
The original Hicks flexible pin planetary gearboxes are manufactured under Orbi-fleX® brand by Wikov, the sole owner of Orbital2 and the Hicks flexible pin technology.
