I am from Germany and I am searching for a company which has developed a special construction to improve the load distribution in planetary gears. The planet wheels (their bearings) are not fitted on a stiff bolt which is pressed in the planet carrier but on a so called flexible mounted spindel. The spindle itself is sitting on a flexible pin which is sitting in the planet carrier. This construction allows the planet wheel (only) to make a "parallel" movment which shall improve the load distribution.
This kind of gear has already been used in helicopters, ships and wind turbines!
I got information of this construction but not the name of the company which produces this kind of special planetary gear. Does anyone know this company and can help me?
Thanks for your intrest,
