Strain Wave Gears

OVALO’s strain wave gears comprise only three components: a flexible spline with external teeth, which is deformed by a rotating elliptical plug to engage with an outer spline featuring internal gear. Its slim and elegant design achieves zero backslash, outstanding transmission accuracy and high torsional stiffness. It retains its high efficiency throughout its entire service lifetime without requiring maintenance.

Additional product advantages:

  • Small, lightweight design
  • High torque capacity
  • High reduction ratios in one stage

If you do not know what exactly you will need from your gearbox or actuator yet, it would be our pleasure to help you find out. Strain wave gears may be executed as hat type or cup type gear with the optional addition of a hollow shaft for efficient use of construction space.  OVALO gear sizes range from flex spline diameter = 35 – 102 mm (1.4 to 4.0 in). The inclusion of output bearings is also possible – usually as a built-in cross roller bearings (CRB), ideally matched to each size.

OVALO Actuators

If you need an additional electric motor or individual add-ons such as brakes or sensors, OVALO can supply an all-in-one actuator solution. If no bought-in motor components fit the customer’s requirements, a customized electric motor is developed and manufactured alongside our strain wave gears in our factory based in Limburg/Lahn, Germany. The integration of control units and sensory technology reaching from torque sensors to temperature control allows for careful monitoring and provides a basis for automation.
