The paper investigates the dynamics of a planetary gear of crank press. Currently, dynamic research of planetary gear of crank presses with account for elasticity of links, friction and backlashes, is a critical task. Dynamics of planetary gear of crank presses is well simulated on a software package SimulationX, with the help of universal basic structures. The paper shows that the dynamics of planetary mechanism with account for backlashes essentially differs from the dynamics of the ideal mechanism. The maximum acceleration of the carrier, when taking into account the backlashes in bearings of gears of the planetary gears of the crank press, increases by 30%.
