Motus Labs is Creating a New Gearless High-Precision Drive


#1

Motus Labs is creating a precision drive that relies on pads with teeth that interlock with an external rotating ring. Cams driven by the input shaft “walk” the pads around the ring causing it to rotate. It reminds me of a sewing machine but wrapped in a circle. Fascinating, but complex solution.

It will be interesting to see how this tech stacks up to Harmonic Drives.
