The technology provider has developed a new mechanical power transmission system. The technology can replace existing drive systems, including current chain, gear and belt-drives in applications across various industries, offering a solution to the problems associated with current technologies, such as large sizes, poor efficiency and lifetime, as well as high levels of noise.
Using a revolutionary method of engagement, the technology is able to distribute transferred power much more effectively leading to step-change increase in efficiency, lifetime and miniaturization. The technology provider is actively seeking partners to conduct pilot projects and licensing opportunities.
This hardware technology is a drive system or mechanical power transmission system, with the purpose of transferring power from point A to B as effectively as possible. Similar to a traditional roller chain, this product comprised of various links, pins and rollers. It can be manufactured with a wide range of materials, but typically metals such as titanium, aluminium and steel are used depending on the application.
The key innovation lies in the engagement mechanism, requiring less friction and increased power compared to a roller chain. This means that the technology is more efficient, quieter, lasts longer and requires less maintenance than conventional technologies. It transfers the same amount of power as a roller chain, but at a reduced weight & size.
The technology can be used to replace current roller chains, belt and gear-drives in extensive range of applications across different markets.
These are the current drive technologies available, and their respective market size and growth:
Since the developed technology can be used in place of existing drive systems, this suggests significant market opportunities for adoption.
The technology can increase efficiency, life time and offer miniaturisation and noise reduction benefits:
