Extreme Environment Hybrid Gearbox Technology

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Extreme Environment Hybrid Gearbox Technology
Rocketstar Robotics proposes the development of a gearbox that uses all ball rolling contact for the highest loaded output gear reduction stage(s), is dry film lubricated and limits peak stresses to the well documented threshold limitation of dry film lubricants. Extensive test data exists in the literature for the reliable application of dry film lubricants in ball bearing applications. A gear reducer that utilizes ball bearing gear elements as the gear reducers highest loaded components will provide high specific torque and reliable, long life performance consistent with existing test data.
