Everything a drive should do (and more)

Highly precise

The Archimedes Drive uses traction combined with the compound principle. This means that there is always contact between the rolling surfaces.

Zero backlash

The continues rolling contact of the cylinders makes the system inherently backlash free. Allowing applications to operate precisely with an unparalleled smooth feeling.

Competitive pricing

IMSystems transmissions are designed with parts related to bearing components.
This means we can combine a proven manufacturing process with new innovations.

Silent operation

Rolling surface contact instead of meshing gear teeth result in a much quieter system. Perfect for collaborative robotic applications.

Back drivable

Low friction characteristics makes it easy to backdrive the system. Making it the perfect solution for force sensing applications.

10.000 : 1

Yes, that's right. A 10.000 : 1 gear reduction in just one
single stage. The only limit we have? Production tolerances.
