World market leader! The robotics sector relies on Nabtesco.

Our precision gears are used in more than 60 % of all industrial robots around the globe! This makes Nabtesco the undisputed world market leader in the field of robot gears!

Although the requirements for the robots and the robot gears vary depending on the application, dynamics and precision, as well as low wear throughout the entire life cycle are always in demand. Pick & place and other handling applications require high speed, repeatability and the precise positioning of heavy loads. A painting robot, on the other hand, must never deviate from the pre-defined path: even slight vibrations or tracking deviations cause uneven paint application and a poor first-run rate.

Cycloidal gears from our production are ideally suited for such applications! Nabtesco gears of the RV-N, RV-C, RF-P and RH-N series are specially adapted to the requirements of robotics.

The perfect custom gear solution for your individual application

With our many years of experience and in-house engineering we help you to develop solutions for your requirements. The engineers and application specialists at Nabtesco gladly accept new and demanding challenges in drive technology – to fulfil your expectations one hundred percent!

Sensitivity for welding robots

Nabtesco cycloidal gears enable high speeds and acceleration rates in pick & place applications – with exceptionally smooth operation and a long life. Especially welding robots benefit from the high precision of our component sets, which give them the necessary “sensitivity”. Our engineers also take measures to design the gears as compact and lightweight as possible.
