Consultants That Build "What Will Be''
Revolutionary design of an ultra high torque, direct drive, low speed motor - the gearless precision drive. The first motor to provide fine resolution and high torque without gearing and feedback. Designed for high load demands and extreme environments, the gearless precision drive design promises to move in exact repeatable increments without using or needing a feedback device.
Open Loop Operable
Near Zero Backdrive Torque (when selected)
Selectively Backdriveable (unlocked mode)
Small Angular Resolution
Uses a single pair of bearings on output
Driven Component can be directly attached to the motor without additional support bearings
Several design options of this Gearless Precision Drive (GPD) Motor exist including a Bell design option for Extreme Environments (Hot/Cold) The concept design is proven and is scalable for industrial applications.
Drill for harsh environments including planetary exploration
Sample collection, caching
Prototype: Improved Rock Core Sample, Break-off, Retention and Ejection System
- Drill: Mass ~ 3 kg
- Core Size: 10mm ∅ x 100mm long
Tubes act as a "power take-off" device so that tubes can be attached and driven by motors within the drill. Tool need no motors or wires.
Percussive Drive can be added.
Dust-tolerant Unisex Electro-mechanical Connector
- No axial pin insertion force
Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking Device
All mechanical (no electronics) hard VAC, high temp, underwater
Prototype: Robust Load Cell for Discrete Contact
- 3 - 10 descrete load sensing contacts
- Size: Starting at ~ 1.5" ∅ x .5" Thick
- Full displacement ~ 0.003 inch
Environmental pressure has no effect on performance operational at:
- High temp
- Hard vac
- High pressure (Mariana Trench Pressure)
