irobot uses Spiroid Gears in its robotics


The Spiroid® gear technology is ideally suited to a wide range of robotics applications. For design engineers in this field, Spiroid represents an opportunity to achieve similar torque outputs using less space and weight than would be required by a competing gear technology. In a list of other benefits, ratio flexibility from 3:1 to 400:1, thru-hole capability, and positive backlash control add even more flexibility to a design engineer’s toolbox. Given Spiroid’s unique advantages within robotics design, Spiroid receives more robotics inquiries than from any other industry. Today, the Spiroid technology is used in a wide variety of applications such as rehab robots, welding robots, robot controller applications, exoskeletons, remote surgery systems and remote bomb disposal.
