The Latest Design Technologies For Gear Devices with Great Transmission Ratios
December 1, 2014
Four types of gear devices with great transmission ratios (simply called great ratio gears or GRGs) are
discussed in this paper. They are strain wave gearing devices (SWGs), trochoidal gear reducers (TGRs),
hypocyclic gear reducers (HGRs) and James Ferguson-type planetary drives (JFDs). The structures, advantages and basic performances of these four devices are compared. The latest design and strength analysis methods are also introduced. To conclude, the future tendencies of GRGs are predicted.
