Precision Involute Gearboxes
Industrial robots with middle or high loads are currently driven by gearboxes with cycloidal shaped gear toothing. The Gear Research Center (FZG) of the Technische Universität München analyzed in a project founded by the Bayerische Forschungsstiftung, if it is possible to meet the high demands of mechanical drive trains with involute toothing. Prototypes of such a gearbox have been built and successfully tested.
