Groundbreaking Advantages

Highly Precise

Inherent zero backlash and high stiffness design results in the most precise drive available on the market. 

More Productive

Unparalleled efficiency resulting from low internal friction pushes useable operating speeds to new limits.

Smooth and Safe

Rolling traction characteristics of the drive allow for mechanically transparent smooth operation.

Redefining Drive Technology

Highly precise

The Archimedes Drive uses traction to transfer torque, meaning that there is always contact between the rolling surfaces, resulting in zero backlash and high stiffness.

Unparalleled efficiency

The continuous rolling contact of the drive's internal components greatly reduces friction. Allowing it to operate with extreme efficiency.

Competitive pricing

The drive's components resemble that of roller bearings. This means that comparable manufacturing processes are used, giving competitive price at scale.

Smooth operation

Rolling surface contact instead of meshing gear teeth result in a much quieter system, allowing the output to rotate effortlessly.

Fully Transparent

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

Overdrive protection

As there are no gear teeth, over-torquing the drive does not mean failure, as it operates like a friction break until the torque is reduces to normal.
