A cycloid drive for gearboxes allows for high reduction ratio and zero or very low backlash. The cycloid gear design is based on compression, whereas most gear interactions are based on shear. Further, the contract of a cycloid gearbox is typically rolling vs. sliding, which is seen in traditional gearboxes. These features of a cycloid gearbox allow for high shock load capacity, high torsional stiffness, and quiet operation.

This paper details the modeling required for correct configuration to perform analysis on the cycloid gearbox and then is demonstrated on a 51:1 ratio, run to failure test. This paper documents the sensitivity of standard condition indicators for gear/bearing during the run to failure test.
