BaneBots was founded in 2005 with the mission of providing quality and affordable components for educational and hobby robotics. We released and evolved innovative product lines including gearboxes, wheels, and supporting components.
As we grew and refined our products we naturally developed and focused on two different markets - the educational and hobby customers BaneBots was originally founded to serve and the OEM customers looking for a high quality, affordable gearbox made in the USA. In December of 2020, we officially reorganized and created Yackey Manufacturing, LLC with two division - BaneBots and Zebra Gearbox. BaneBots will continue to focus on the hobby and educational space. Zebra Gearbox will focus on OEM customers, offering a wide variety of customizable gearboxes proudly manufactured in the USA by us in our Colorado Facility.
The Zebra Gearbox name is new but the gearboxes are built on a foundation of over 15 years of product development and the experience of thousands of users. One of Zebra's greatest strengths is the ability to configure and customize the gearbox for a specific need. BaneBots will offer a few hundred standard configurations of Zebra Gearboxs. On the (soon to be launched) Zebra Gearbox site, you will find a wider variety of stock gearboxes as well as the ability to fully configure any gearbox by selecting from seven gearbox lines spread across three families all offering multiple shafts, blocks, ringnears, and inputs. Zebra Gearbox will be providing literally hundreds of thousands of gearbox configurations with very low minimum order quantities and short lead times.
