The Technology

Linear motion in a cylinder using helical wave generator in elastic component. A large static radial holding force is formed in addition to the linear motion created by the elliptical movement. The motion is precise and requires low power engine to create large force.


  • Cheap and simple, can be 3D printed and disposable
  • Large transmission ratio forming linear motion
  • Energy saving
  • Precise motion

Applications and Opportunities

  • Medical devices and disposables – pumps, syringes
