Make the Archimedes Drive producible (at large) scale and cost effective.
IMSystems develops and manufactures a new generation of gearboxes. Contrary to the widely used transmission of force thorugh geat teeth, IMSystems’ so called Archimedes Drive transmits force through hollow friction rollers.Prior to FASTTRACK, IMSystems has proven the technical feasibility of their technology. To become a realible and competitive supplier for the robotics industry, they needed to prove their product quality and lead time.
Hirschvogel has a vast amount of expertise concerning large-scale manufacturing hardware products. This project took place in the product development department with Advanced Engineering, Technical Sales and Calculation experts.
The expert support by Hirschvogel was a major milestone for IMSystems. The results not only proof, that the Archimedes Drive can be manufactured in large scale and be a commercially viable technology, but also brings along higher performace at lower COGS for future customers.
