An inside look at ball-speed reducers
Lansea Systems offers a line of ball-speed reducers that use eccentricity to generate reductions. Kamo Seiko's Q-Ten reducers eliminate backlash and ensure 100% mesh throughout the drive by preloading the balls. Because torque transmits only through steel balls, efficiency is high and noise level is low. The reducers are supplied with input and output shafts, but a hollow input shaft can be substituted to accept step or servomotors. They are available in ratios from 5:1 to 1,600:1 and have a torque range from 35 lb-in. to 1,500 lb-in.
