Precision Reduction Gears
For Powerful, Elaborate, and Swift Movements at the Forefront of Manufacturing
Precision reduction gears are key components of industrial robots used on automobile production lines. Without them, the robots would be unable to perform the powerful, swift, and precise actions needed to assemble the cars and other vehicles that we see all around us every day all over the world.
Nabtesco has been a market leader in precision reduction gears for about 30 years now and, as a specialist in the field, has consistently produced technical innovations. Our technology makes it possible to extract a tremendous amount of power from a small motor while at the same time enabling more precise movements. Nabtesco’s precision reduction gears are lightweight and compact while maintaining high accuracy and rigidity. As such, they are used not only in industrial robots but also in various other areas.
Thanks to their high reliability, Nabtesco’s precision reduction gears are preferred by a range of domestic and overseas robot manufacturers in the joints of their industrial robots, giving us a large share of the market. We have an approximately 60% (Nabtesco’s estimate) share of the global market for precision reduction gears when it comes to the joints of medium-size to large industrial robots.

Precision Reduction Gears: RVTMComponent Type
The precision reduction gears RVTM are compact and lightweight with outstanding rigidity and overload resistance. With these features, the reduction gears serve to provide excellent acceleration capabilities, smooth motion, low backlash, and accurate positioning precision, leading to enhanced robot controllability.
This is a gear-head type product based on the precision reduction gears RVTM, with the emphasis on ease of use. The product is easy to install on servomotors and features airtight grease sealing.
Gear-Head Type (Table Type)
This table-type series is designed for accurate positioning. The low-profile products with large and hollow shafts are easy to use and so are widely adopted for index tables as well as for pivots of various devices.
