Flex Hub

Remember that one time when you were working on your robot the day before ship and you realized that the gear ratio you’d chosen for that end effector just wouldn’t work. You look over to your programmers and you say ” WE NEED MORE POWER!!! ” and they say ” WE’RE GIVING HER ALL SHE’S GOT!” You scrounge for a gear, any gear that may give you more output torque, and it’s just not happening. Remember that time. Well I bet you wish you had a flex hub at that time.

Flex Hub is the new modular gear hub solution from iR3 Creative. Concept is pretty simple. There is a hub, there is a gear, there are two retaining rings. Put them together into your assembly. If the gear ratio / shaft size / output / whatever isn’t working rinse and repeat with a new hub or gear. Oh and all of our Modulox kits have been updated to fit three of these bad boys side by side. Check out the video if you haven’t already or click either of the banners to buy at AndyMark.com. Check our how we manufacture the hubs in the video below!

Fewer Components. More Modularity. It’s just that simple.
