KHK Stock Gears are used in a wide range of applications; from high-precision machinery to hand-held devices. Not only for factory machines, gears are used and found in a large range of non-industrial applications, from automatic ticket gates at train stations, to Sushi-cooking robots, to automatic golf ball handlers at driving ranges. For mechanical engineering students, gears are commonplace and one of the most elemental design components, where gears are used for formula cars, robots in robot competition, and human-powered aircrafts.
Here are some examples, with photos, showing how small and lightweight models of KHK Stock Gears are applied.
Gears are used in power transmission to the arms.(Used when the transmission of high-loads is required)
After quenching, gears become more durable to handle high loads.
KHK Robot Competition
Every October, KHK sponsors and holds a robot fight competition called the “KHK Robot Competition”, compatible to the Kawasaki Robot Completion.
We are pleased to offer an event and opportunity for competition for robot designers/builders who have advanced technological skills. It is our honor that the KHK competition has been readily accepted and become very popular.
