The nutating gear system, developed and patented by the Italian company Stam, could deliver the required reduction ratio for drilling on other planets to take soil samples, with less elements than conventional used gears. The advantages are the compact dimensions, the wide range of possible reduction ratios from 10 to 3000 and the use of multiple tooth engagement, which reduces the need for high-strength gear material while allowing high torques and increased reliability.
