CIM-ile Gearbox

simile - [sim-uh-lee]
noun
1. a figure of speech in which two unlike things are explicitly compared, as in “she is like a rose.”


CIM-ile - [sim-uh-lee]
noun
1. a gearbox in which a smaller motor is used as an input, with the output emulating the RPM and mounting of a CIM motor, as in "the CIM-ile has made my 550 sized motor much like a CIM motor."


The CIM-ile gives teams the ability to emulate the RPM and mounting pattern of the popular CIM motor using one smaller motor in a compact, lightweight package. The precision VEXpro gears and glass-filled nylon housing create a system that is “similar” to a CIM and can be used with any gearbox or drive where a CIM would be used.
