Prior research conducted by the team at NJIT has shown that contactless torque transmission is possible and effective. In recent years, there has been significant development in materials, material systems, and materials processing for applications in contactless transmission. In minimizing material wear and tear due to minimal or zero friction, gearless systems require no lubrication, offer extended shelf-life and exhibit minimal noise. By utilizing 3D printing technologies such as fused deposition modeling and stereolithography, we are able to rapidly test new concepts and ideas. Growth opportunities of this evolving technology are summarized.
