Composite ring gears are used on some new robotic arms. Metal ring gear is installed inside fiber reinforced composite housing carbon fiber robot arm. The metal ring gear is part of a rotary gear actuator that moves the arm. Using carbon fiber reinforced composite arm/gear housing reduces inertia of the robot. KUKA makes a robot with carbon composite ring gear design.
