“Give me a lever long enough, and I can lift the world”
Almost every major industrial advancement was a result of a fundamental improvement in the way we were able to transfer mechanical power. The Archimedes Drive, like the groundbreaking innovations that came before it, is the first technology in the last half century that has the potential to advance industry by greatly improving the accuracy, speed, efficiency, and durability of current systems.
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’.
Controllable, incredible precise movements
Low starting and back-drive torque
True zero backlash
Inherent over-torque protection
Wide range of reduction ratios
Quiet and efficient (>90%)
Archimedes Drive is the first major transmission revolution in over half a century, greatly improving the world of mechatronic applications. Discover all specifications in our brochure.
The Archimedes Drive has been specifically designed to increase the capabilities of factory automation equipment and to open up new design opportunities for a multitude of new applications.
With the first commercial product, the Archimedes Drive Development Kit (DFB), IMSystems wants to showcase the performance of the technology. Allowing customers to experience its ground-breaking features first-hand.
