Hurray! We are very hapy to have Harmonic Drive present at TUS Expo & RoboBusiness Europe, 19-21 April next at the World Forum The Hague (NL).

Harmonic Drive’s mission is to provide motion control solutions that give our customers a competitive advantage. To accomplish this they continually invest in the growth of employees and in the company’s capabilities.

Harmonic Drive, LLC engineers and manufactures precision servo actuators, gearheads and gear component sets. Harmonic Drive works closely with both Fortune 500 and companies of all sizes to understand their application requirements and provide a standard or, in most cases, a custom-engineered solution to enable the success of their design project.

The majority of the products sold by Harmonic Drive, LLC are proudly made in Peabody, Massachusetts, USA. Harmonic Drive Group Companies in Japan (Harmonic Drive Systems, Inc.) and Germany (Harmonic Drive AG) provide additional products.

With over 60 years of experience, Harmonic Drive’s expert engineering and production teams develop enabling technologies and products to meet the needs of an evolving motion control market. Harmonic Drive has a rich and proud company history. It’s high-precision, zero-backlash Harmonic Drive® strain wave gears and Harmonic Planetary® gears have, and continue to play critical roles in robotics, spaceflight applications, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, factory automation equipment, medical diagnostics and surgical robotics.

The unique principle of the strain wave gear was based on a brand new concept. The mechanism was the brainchild of the genius American inventor C. Walton Musser. Musser was a brilliant inventor who was awarded more than 1,500 patents, in a wide range of fields going even beyond his specialty in mechanical engineering to include also physics, chemistry, and biology. Prior to his invention of the harmonic gear, efforts to achieve greater speed and accuracy in gear mechanisms for conveying driving power and motion were focused solely on making the gear mechanism more rigid. The principle of harmonic gearing by contrast was to make use of the flexibility of metal and apply elastic dynamics. Since this method of conveying motive power turned conventional wisdom on its head, it suddenly became the object of worldwide interest.
