About Cascade Drives

The history of Cascade Drives

Cascade Drives AB is founded by Mr. Stig Lundbäck, MD, innovator and technical expert. Stig passed away in 2017 but spent most of his life researching the pumping and control functions of the human heart. Mr. Lundbäck invented the Dynamic Adaptive Piston Pump Technology (DAPPT) in 1984, and his discoveries were published in his book Cardiac Pumping and Function of the Ventricular Septum from 1986. He later became interested in ocean wave power and used his considerable mechanical expertize to design high-power wave energy converters.

Cascade Drive's patented solutions are based on several of Mr Lundbäck's unique inventions regarding equal load distribution between gear wheels. His original ideas have been further developed by inventors and engineers for several years, not only industrial linear actuators, but also for wave power conversion in ocean energy applications.

At Cascade Drive, we are now proud to be able to offer commercial designs based on Mr Lundbäck's inventions. Stig's focus was always on solving real-world problems, and that is exactly what eqGear technology is all about.
