the human empowering robotics company

 

Rise Robotics designs, makes, and sells breakthrough mechanical products.

The company was founded in 2011 to advance the robotics industry with the ultimate goal of enabling powerful wearable ExoSUITS™ for all.

Our first product, Bacon Robotic Air Compressor™, disrupts handheld air compressors.

Bacon Robotic Air Compressor is enabled by the innovative Cyclone Linear Drive.
A new mobile robotic component which can advance many applications.
Cyclone drives enable piston or muscle like actuation.
It was inspired by our ExoSuit™ explorations.

ENABLED BY CYCLONE DRIVE TECHNOLOGY

A BREAKTHROUGH MECHANICAL COMPONENT

The Cyclone Drive was invented out of the necessity for a more portable, efficient, cost effective, and easier to maintain power solution for a mobile ExoSUIT. Traditional components and methods are inherently limited by contact pressure and friction, making the field of robotics a complicated, slow and expensive market to grow and adopt.

Using best practices in contact mechanics, the Cyclone Drive is a cost effective way of reducing high speed rotary torque to slow linear force using only rolling contact. The Cyclone Drive excels at higher reduction ratios unlike conventional gear box methods.

Lightweight and efficient, the Cyclone Drive reduces motor size and usage.

CYCLONE drive BENEFITS

HIGH PERFORMANCE
The elimination of friction as a critical function for energy transfer allows for efficiencies in the 90% range.


 

BACK DRIVABLE
The Cyclone Cable Piston can deliver power as easily as it can regenerate power on the backstroke.

LOW COST
Distributed pressure inherent to cables over rolling surfaces enables the use of molded plastics instead of expensive metals.

 


LIGHTWEIGHT
Thanks to efficient use of materials, the Cyclone Drive is rendered lightweight in comparison to existing transmissions.

ELIMINATION OF CUT GEARS
The Cyclone's robust design eliminates the need for precision cutting and grinding of gears and ball screws.


 

VARIABLE PROFILES
Depending on specific linkage designs, variable profiles can be generated to counteract force curves.
