The Archimedes Drive is a new traction-based speed reducer, engineered to outperform current systems on key aspects. It combines two working principles. These are the ‘compound planetary principle’ (also known as a Wolfrom drive) and traction rollers. These two principles form the patented theory at the core of the Archimedes Drive, named the ‘compound planetary traction drive’. Using this, the Archimedes Drive is able to to increase the capabilities of factory automation equipment and to open up new design opportunities for a multitude of new applications. Thanks to its high stiffness and gear-free design, the Archimedes Drive offers true zero backlash, overload protection, and remarkable precision.
