Products of Harmonic Drive AG

Highly Precise and Without Compromise

Maximum precision, a lifetime of zero backlash, and compact construction – these are just some of the requirements that the market demands for its applications – requirements that our products are well able to fulfil.

We are the technological leaders

Rooted in the heart of Europe, yet at home all over the world. As the technological leaders in high-precision drive technology, we develop solutions for a diverse spectrum of applications – component sets, special-purpose actuators designed to customer specification, and system solutions. Your business is our drive.

Originally entering the market as a gear manufacturer, we have over the years established ourselves as a worldwide solutions provider for motors, actuators and systems.

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.

 

 

 

Aerospace

40 years without any maintenance in space, 30 years of being built in to aircraft wings, under daily enormous temperature changes – 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.

Medical technology

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.

Defense

Under the roughest conditions, with the greatest responsibility, and round the clock – defence system applications are faced with a whole series of specific challenges. Radar systems, reconnaissance aircraft and ground defences rely on Harmonic Drive® gears to ensure the protection of the people.

Additive manufacturing / Machine tools

Is it possible to strike a Euro coin at a distance of a hundred metres? It is not only possible but must absolutely be achievable if high value machine tools are to be manufactured. Harmonic Drive AG products are used in particular at sites where space is limited. The layout in such cases is not defined by torque but rather by rigidity or by hollow shaft diameter.
