The cycloidal gearbox uses the difference in number of lobes (tooth) between the housing and the cycloidal disk to provide high reduction ratios. The components of cycloidal gearbox include
- Eccentric bearing (for input)
- Housing with equally spaced rollers
- Cycloidal Disk (heart of the gearbox)
- Flange with output pins
I'm working on a toolbox which would decide the design parameters of these components based on the requirements set by the user.
Interested Kite users (especially students) comment below, I would be glad to add new users to the team;
