I was fascinated by this type of gearbox and always wanted to make one. This type of gearbox is one of the most used in industrial robots. This type of gearbox only has a single reduction (in this case 2 because of the belt reduction) with a very high reduction ratio. Because of the single stage reduction there's almost no tolerance/play between input and output shaft. Conventional gearboxes use more gears to achieve the same reduction ratio, the tolerances between the gears add up resulting in greater tolerances/play between the input and output shaft.
Here are some specifications of the gearbox:
Max tested torque at 12V: 41.3kg*cm or 4N*m
Circular spline teeth amount: 50 teeth
Flex spline teeth amount: 48 teeth
Small GT2 pulley: 16 teeth
Big GT2 pulley: 36 teeth
reduction ratio strain wave gear: (48 - 50)/48 = -0.0416
1/0.0416 = 24.038
Reduction ratio = 24.038:1
Reduction ratio belt drive: 36/16= 2.25
Reduction ratio = 2.25:1
Total reduction ratio = 54.0855:1
