DIY Build Yourself with our Rebel Strain Wave Gears

On the basis of the ReBeL® gearbox, an individual robot can be designed as a cobot with joining links thanks to the additional electronic components.  The ReBeL® gearbox can be used along the last axis of an articulated arm, linear robot or delta robot – in front of various gripper systems, for example. The cobot gearbox system with fully integrated gearboxes helps implement a wide variety of cobot concepts quickly.  The plug-and-play solution means that the user doesn't have to worry about power electronics.
