Special technology products

Developed to customer specifications

It is your business that we are driven by. Our solutions are as varied and individual as our customers’ demands. Indeed, four out of five products to leave our premises are custom constructions, special technology products that we develop, engineer and produce to the specifications of our customers - from space-saving component sets to tailor-made, special-purpose drives. Harmonic Drive® precision technology based on the strain wave gear principle is not only found in the field of machine tool construction, but it can also be encountered in robotics and aerospace as well as in numerous other key industries.

SolutionKit® - Permanent Precision® for servo actuators

Faster cycle times, better quality and higher accuracy in conjunction with a high degree of customisation - these are the requirements of today’s customer. This is clearly demonstrated by the increasing demand for smaller production batch sizes. However, it is also necessary to keep costs low and to reduce these by overall standardisation whilst continuing to develop and implement solutions within a defined time frame. HPGP-32A + FPM-0800 Series Servo Actuators combine a synchronous servo motor and a Harmonic HPGP Series Planetary Gear to create a highly dynamic servo actuator. The peak torque of the HPGP precision gear is increased by 30 %. Various technologies for gears, motors, feedback system, output bearings and other components are designed in such a way that they can be used in different modular combinations. SolutionKit® from Harmonic Drive AG enables bespoke gearing solutions to be realised with a high degree of individualisation within a short period of time.

AlopexDrive® - Largest hollow shaft with extended temperature range

AlopexDrive® Series Hollow Shaft Servo Actuators combine a synchronous servo motor, especially developed for mobile applications and extreme environmental conditions, and a Unit from the CPU-H Series. Available in six sizes with gear ratios between 30 and 160:1, the actuators can provide maximum torques from 9 to 647 Nm. The output bearing with high tilting capacity allows direct attachment of heavy payloads without the need for further supports, thereby providing simple and space saving design installations. To adapt to your specific application, the AlopexDrive® Series offers many possible configurations of motor windings, motor feedback systems, motor brake, sensors and cables as well as connector options. The integrated hollow shaft can be used to feed through supply lines or services for additional axes, enabling space saving designs with minimal installation requirements. A reinforced output bearing allows direct installation of heavy loads without further support and offers therefore an easy and space-saving design. Due to the corrosion protection and internal design, the series is ideal for use under extreme conditions (temperature, shock, vibration). When in operation, the AlopexDrive® Series which has a sinusodial three phase brushless winding, offers quiet, smooth, precise and reliable running in a compact volume. Used in extreme environments in applications for highly accurate positioning the drives function in a confined space very precise and reliable.

LynxDrive® HIPERFACE DSL® - Compact actuator with single cable solution

The Servo Actuators LynxDrive-20D combine a synchronous servo motor, Unit from the CobaltLine®-2UH Series, feedback sensor and a cross roller output bearing. Available in size 20 with five gear ratios between 50 and 160:1, the actuators can provide maximum torques from 73 to 120 Nm. The output bearing with high tilting capacity can easily withstand and accurately handle heavy payloads.

The assembled HIPERFACE DSL® motor feedback as single cable solution is a digital enhancement of the communication between motor and controller. The interface only requires a minimum of connecting lines, because the robust and fail safe data transmission takes place for the first time ever via the motor cable. In addition, data of other sensors can also be transmitted via the digital motor feedback protocol. The innovative motor feedback system offers functional safety with the possibility of remote maintenance into the actuator. By combining the LynxDrive® Actuators with the specially adapted YukonDrive® Servo Controllers, it is possible to provide a single source supply for a preconfigured drive system tailored to suit your application.

The accurate positioning of the actuator ensures stable machine characteristics, short cycle times and minimum space requirements. With high protection ratings and corrosion resistance, the series is perfectly suited for use in harsh and demanding environmental conditions.
