YPGC/YPGC-A planetary drives are made of 60% steel, about 35% cast iron and a lower percentage of aluminum, copper, rubber and brass. YPGC planetary gear units are divided into 21 groups that transmit torque to the output shaft ranging from 350 to 500,000 lb-ft. Modular construction permits coupling of bevel gears, worm gears, hydraulic brakes and input shafts to planetary units. Modularity allows for choice of coupling flanges for hydraulic or electric motors. Various stages, in different sizes, can be mounted in series to offer reduction ratios from 3:1 to 7:1 on single-stage drives up to 10.000:1 and more on 5-stage drives.

The wide selection of output shafts and flanges simplifies the reduction unit mounting operation on industrial machinery or plants.
