Harmonic Drive® Products in use


40 years without any maintenance in space or 30 years of being built in to aircraft wings or under daily temperature changes between -60 °C to +40 °C – these are indicators of the reliability and quality of our products. New demands, such as special materials, extremely light constructions or dry lubrication have been developed for aerospace and defence purposes, only for them later to find use in our industrial products.

Medical Engineering

It is not only world class athletes who want to be fit again quickly after an operation, and today in most cases, recovery is being supported by more technologies which permit targeted training of the body parts affected. The secret of success is programmable movement sequences which can be implemented via a precision actuator. Reliable and precise drive technology is also a fundamental design requirement in the field of surgery.

Special Environments

Harmonic Drive® products are designed to meet the highest requirements for use under the harshest environmental conditions, such as extreme temperatures or other special climatic conditions. Applications in defence, vacuum or cryogenic technology as well as in the depths of our oceans are often confronted with such extreme conditions where the integrated components have to prove themselves once again.

Robotics and Automation

Robots have for a long time been taking over tasks which are too monotonous for humans to produce to the highest quality. With modern programming and performance improvements from drive technology, these helpers are now entering fields which were unthinkable a short while ago. This cooperation between man and robot has become an important trend in recent years – one meets each other in some sense.

Mechanical Engineering

Is it possible to hit a euro coin at a distance of 100 metres? It is not only possible, it must be absolutely feasible to produce high-quality machine tools. Harmonic Drive® products are mainly found where space is limited. They are usually not designed according to torque, but also according to stiffness or hollow shaft diameter.
