Exhibition Info - 10/11/2022A cooperative robot equipped with STARLITE’s S-Bear DD was showcased at “Japan Robot Week 2022.”

Starlite exhibited S-Bear DD4830 mounted in a collaborative robot for the first time in cooperation with Keigan Inc. at “Japan Robot Week 2022” held at Tokyo Big Site from October 19 to October 21, 2022.

Japan Robot Week 2022

“Japan Robot Week 2022” is a specialty exhibition to showcase robots such as service robots, collaborative robots, and system integrators.

S-Bear DD4830 exhibited for the first time is a resin gear reducer that Starlite’s original material “S-Bear” was used. The unique speed reduction mechanism not only makes the reducer flat but also achieves two lightness: the lightness of the product and back-drive torque, increasing safety and practicality and aiming to propose robots and actuators that are no harm to humans.

Many people from major manufacturers to venture companies visited the exhibition and commented that the lightweight gear reducers would have a positive impact on the weight capacity and the ability to use reduction gears in severe environments such as underwater would lead to new business opportunities. Starlite will continue to search for new applications and make efforts for performance improvements.

<Gear reducer S-Bear DD4830 Overview>

  • Product Name

    S-Bear DD4830

  • Product Concept

    S-Bear DD4830 is a compact and flat resin gear reducer that can achieve high torque. Our original high polymer material offers smooth rotation and maintenance-free operation.

  • Product Feature
    • Compared to metal gear reducers, there are “two lightness” factors: the lightness of the product and back-drive torque.
    • It is possible to use the product without lubrication and seals in water because of its rust-resistant feature.
    • It is possible to estimate torque on the joint and force from the motor current even in a submerged environment. (sensor-less control in submerged environments)
