Developing Castable Metal Harmonic Drives

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Developing Castable Metal Harmonic Drives

This effort utilizes the high elastic strain limit and net-shaped processing of metallic glasses to fabricate low-cost harmonic drives that outperform steel.  The harmonic drive design and performance will be modeled and a 3D polymer version will be printed.  A harmonic drive will be fabricated from commercially die cast bulk metallic glass parts.
