Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a catalogue of available gear-heads?
No, as the market for gear-heads & transmissions is very broad, we work with gearbox manufacturers at every scale to deliver solutions to the market. If you have an application in mind, we can help you design, prototype and manufacture it.
How do I work with Orbitless Drives?
What is the license fee for an Orbitless drive?
What is NEW about this technology?
Orbitless is a novel and fundamentally distinct drive topology platform, much like a planetary or parallel-axis drive, with patents recently issued around the world. Check out this video to find out more.
How do I decide which Orbitless Drive to use?
As some of the parts are eccentric, can it be operated at high speeds?
How does Orbitless deal with “high-torque” applications?
How big is the offset between drive-shafts?
What is the reduction ratio?
Can helical gears be used?
Isn’t the ring gear (internal gear) necessary?
The Orbitless Development Program enables companies to evaluate the Orbitless Drive technology.
