High precision speed reducer revolutionizing the industry.

Experience unprecedented precision, efficiency, zero backlash with the groundbreaking Archimedes Drive technology.

Introducing the Archimedes Drive

The Archimedes Drive is a groundbreaking technology that surpasses traditional speed reducers in performance, precision, and efficiency. Discover how our innovative design revolutionizes the industry and brings unparalleled advantages to your applications.

Extreme Accuracy

Having continuous tractive contact removes backlash and makes the drive incredibly stiff. This results in best-in-class accuracy.

Overload Protection

If overloaded (high instantaneous shock-load), the drive acts as a friction break until the torque returns to the operating regime.

Unparalleled Efficiency

The drive’s rolling characteristics resemble that of a bearing. This results in similarly low internal friction, increasing efficiency.

Archimedes Drive

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’.
