Harmonic Drive Introduces New Lightweight Versions of Select Gearhead Products

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new lightweight versions of select gearhead products.  The new gearheads are ideal for designs where weight is a critical factor.  Building on the success of Harmonic Drive LLCs current gear units, new lightweight versions were the next logical evolution of the CS/ SH product lines.

With weight reductions of 20-30% without any reduction in torque ratings, the Lightweight (LW) gear units provide exceptional torque density.  A wide variety of sizes and reduction ratios are available with maximum peak torques ranging from 450 in-lb. to 60,500 in-lb.

Key features include:

  • Zero Backlash
  • High torque capacity
  • Accuracy <1 arc-min
  • High torsional stiffness
  • High efficiency
  • Smooth operation
  • Robust cross roller output bearing
  • Output flange for direct mounting of load

These models are ideally suited for the following applications-

  • Industrial Robots  -allowing operation with higher acceleration rates and payload capacity
  • Mobile Robots  -allowing lower weight designs which improves battery life with sacrificing performance

Information on the CSG-LW and CSF-LW Harmonic Drive™ gearheads can be viewed at the link below-
