CEO / Founder, R&D, Bus. Development
We want to disrupt and change the game in the ‘1000’ years old, $ 200 billion large indu
Operations & Finance, Sales
We provide innovative gear solutions for all the machinery markets that are based on our new and fundamentally different technology.
Senior Engineer, R&D
In our technology we use purely rolling balls to couple the wheels of the gear in order to eliminate friction and the corresponding energy losses.
Senior Engineer, R&D & Manufacturing
The energy efficiency of our gears is close to 100% – as a result we can reduce energy costs and CO2 emissions by up to 70% depending on applications.
Senior Engineer, Design & Manufacturing
Further advantages include smaller size, simpler design, lower noise, longer life, higher precision, haptic & backdrivable capabilities that extend further our applicability and competitive edge.
Senior Sales & Marketing
Our gear technology is applicable in practically all machines that move across the entire $ 200 billion large gear universe.
Senior Sales & Marketing, Sales Strategy
As a business, we sell various instances of our technology via know-how, IP, engineering and prototyping – we plan to start serial production later.

Short term, as a beach head market, we are focusing on electric vehicle applications, but longer term, we will expand to other markets too.
FRICTION CAUSES PROBLEMS IN EV GEARS
GEARS ARE KEY COMPONENTS TO EV’S
» Couple the motor and the wheels
» Gear down rpm & gear up torque of motor to match those of the wheels
FRICTION IN GEARS CAUSES ENERGY LOSS
» Wastes money & CO2
» Generates heat, noise, wear & abrasion, reduces gear lifetime
EV’S ARE CRUCIAL TO OUR CLIMATE EFFORT
» Must spread wide & fast
» To achieve that, their technology must advance further
Problem: friction in the gears wastes EV range & battery life
» EV range & battery life are short
» since onboard stored energy is small
» since battery energy density is low
Better not waste it on friction
FRICTION IS THE ENEMY:
OUR GOAL IS TO
sincroll® “FRICTION-FREE” GEARS OFFER SOLUTION
IN OUR NEW GEAR TECHNOLOGY WE FULLY ELIMINATED FRICTION
Assuming perfect rigidity & accuracy
In this model
Energy loss is zero
Efficiency is 100%
Such assumptions do not fully hold, second order effects & minor losses arise.
We use balls rolling along grooves on both wheels to couple the two wheels together in a gearing action.
The balls do pure rolling without sliding & friction.
This mechanism differs fundamentally from the state of the art.
We expect in practice still.
Energy efficiency to be well above 99%
We can generate solutions for any gear specifications, shaft angles & offsets, any gearing ratios, size & speed, for any gear applications, in any machines that move.
Our new technology represents one of the greatest paradigm shits in the ‘1000’ years old gear industry.
We focus on EVs now to advance their technology with the benefits we provide.
UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY PROPOSES UNIQUE VALUE
WE CAN RAISE EV’S EFFICIENCY BY 5-10%
Motto from a major car OEM:
‘We could kill for HALF PERCENT efficiency gain…’
For an EV, we can save per year
€ 100 in kWh cost and
100 kg in CO2 emission
» extend range per year by 1,400 km
» extend range per single charge by 40 km
» such savings add up per year to
€ 100 billion in kWh cost and
100 million tons in CO2 emission
as EVs take over the entire market
sincroll™ GEARS’ FURTHER ADVANTAGES
» Small size, simple design
» Low maintenance, high reliability
» High rpm motor: small, cheap, quiet, efficient
» Low noise, long life
» High precision movement
» Haptic & backdrivable capabilities, force feedback
» Large variety of solutions, constructional flexibility
EXTRA RANGE 40 km OF CRITICAL VALUE
Since charging lasts long hours, destination must be reached within a single battery charge (or a minimum number of recharging stops – same thing).
Longer range is therefore critical to be able to reach further destinations i.e. for heavier utilization – it is of very high utilization value.
Heavy utilization is the future since current utilization of 5% is just too low and also this is what autonomous vehicles will bring to us.

BUSINESS MODEL & MARKETING STRATEGY
TECHNOLOGY BUSINESS MODEL
We sell various instances of our technology via IP licences, know-how, engineering services, prototype manufacturing and testing.
We have a large variety of instances and markets that makes the model highly scalable.
EV instances and markets are a subset of these.
Model works as follows
1. CONCEPT DESIGN – based on customer specifications we develop concept designs
2. TECHNICAL DESIGN – based on a selected concept design, we construct a detailed technical design including CAD models and workshop drawings for manufacture
3. PROTOTYPE – we manufacture a prototype
4. TEST – we test the prototype
5. LICENCE – we sell a licence for our IP to empower the customer to market the developed gear in their own products
6. SUPPORT – we provide support and update on new developments
The above program can be iterated and rerouted various ways.
Different payments apply each stage.
We have patents granted in 13 countries and plan to generate 2-3 new ones every year in the following many years.
PRODUCTION BUSINESS MODEL
We manufacture & sell selected gear products directly to gear users.
Model will start at a later stage when the necessary capex will become available.
EXPONENTIAL SCALING, GIGANTIC GROWTH POTENTIAL
Both business models follow the usual rules of the economies of scale – with the added feature of synergies as said above. Considering the giant size of the market and our unique competitive advantages, the upside potential for our business is immense.
TRANSFER-FEE BASED MARKETING STRATEGY
This program will start as soon as the necessary funding becomes available.
» Disrupt the ‘1000’ years old gear industry
» Focus on EVs, contribute to climate effort
» Expand to other markets longer term
ACCESS MANY MARKETS
