Ultra-Flat, Zero-Backlash Gear by Harmonic Drive LLC

Ultra Flat Harmonic Drive Gearing

Ultra Flat Harmonic Drive Gearing

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new, ultra-flat, zero-backlash gear unit.  The CSF-2UP gear unit is the newest model in the CSF mini-series product line.

These new high-torque, zero-backlash gear units have an ultra-flat configuration and feature a large cross-roller bearing with high-moment stiffness.  Complete with a housing and precision output bearing, Harmonic Drive® gear units are lightweight and extremely compact.  The CSF-2UP gearheads are ideally suited for robots or manipulators requiring an ultra-compact solution.

Harmonic Drive® gear units are comprised of a zero-backlash gear integrated with a housing and precision output bearing.  These new models are very lightweight and extremely flat.  Utilizing a large cross-roller bearing at the output flange allows direct mounting of the load without the need for any additional support, enabling compact robot designs.  These bearings have excellent axial and radial run-out characteristics and provide high load capacity as well as high-moment stiffness to achieve precise, repeatable positioning of the robot arm.

Gear Ratios of 30:1, 50:1, and 100:1 are available in each size, offering the machine designer a wide selection of speed and torque specifications.  Motor mounting adapters are also available to match the designer’s choice of motor.

Like all Harmonic Drive® gear units, the CSF-2UP mini gears are highly reliable and maintain zero backlash for the life of the gear.

Features include:

  • Zero Backlash
  • New Ultra Flat Configuration​
  • High Positioning Accuracy
  • Compact Form Factor​
  • High-moment stiffness cross roller bearing
  • Motor mounting flange available

As the trend towards developing more compact robots gains momentum, these Harmonic Drive® units are uniquely positioned to provide designers the affordability and flexibility to meet the increasing demands and performance expectations posed by the robotics industry.

Quick Connect Gearheads for Any Servo or Stepper Motor

The new Harmonic Drive® Quick Connect Gearhead website features the following:

Harmonic Planetary gears have simultaneous meshing between the sun gear and planet gears and between the planet gears and the internal gear. The sun gear is connected to the motor and a carrier, supporting the planet gears, is connected to the output. Single stage planetary gears can achieve reduction ratios up to 10:1. Ratios above 10:1 utilize a two stage design where the carrier of the first stage drives the sun gear of the second planetary stage.

Harmonic Drive® gearing utilizes a unique operating principle which is based upon the elastic mechanics of metals. The greatest benefits are the zero-backlash characteristics and the weight and space savings compared to other gears because our gear mechanism consists of only three basic parts. They are the: Wave Generator, Flexspline and Circular Spline.

CSF Series Mini Gearheads from Harmonic Drive LLC

Harmonic Drive CSF Mini Gearheads

Harmonic Drive CSF Mini Gearheads

The Harmonic Drive CFS series of mini gearheads provide high positioning accuracy in a very compact package with a 4-point ball bearing mounted in the main shaft.  The CFS mini gearhead series comes in four types; the 2XH-F, the 2XH-J, the 1U and 1U-CC.  Each gearhead is designed for servomotor and specific applications.

Gearhead Type 2XH-F
This gearhead is designed to be coupled directly to a servomotor.  The motor shaft is attached directly to the gearhead input element.  The output of the gearhead is a flange.
Gearhead Type 2XH-J
This gearhead is designed to be coupled directly to a servomotor.  The motor shaft is attached directly to the gearhead input element. The output of the gearhead is a shaft.
Gearhead Type 1U
This gearhead is easy to use and has both an input and output shaft.  It also allows for pulleys to be used for the input to the gearhead.
Gearhead Type 1U-CC
This gearhead is designed to be coupled directly to a high performance small servomotor.

Harmonic Drive’s Gearhead Family Expands

Harmonic Drive Gearhead Family

Harmonic Drive Gearhead Family

New HPN Planetary gearheads feature a robust design utilizing helical gears for quiet performance and long life.  These gearheads are available with short lead times and are designed to couple to any servo motor with our Quick-Connect™ coupling.  This new value series of planetary gears carry the reputation for quality and reliability for which Harmonic Drive® products are known throughout the world.  HPN Harmonic Planetary® gears are available in 5 sizes, with reduction ratios ranging from 3:1 to 31:1.

HPG and HPGP Quick Connect™ gearheads offer high precision and low backlash (standard: < 3-arc-min, optional: <1 arc-min).  Innovative ring gear automatically adjusts for backlash, ensuring consistent, low backlash for the life of the gearhead.  Standard (HPG) and high torque (HPGP) versions are available. With reduction ratios ranging from 3:1 to 50:1, HPG and HPGP Harmonic Planetary® gears are each available in 6 frame sizes.  HPG is also available in 3 sizes as a right angle configguration.

CSF-GH and CSG-GH Quick Connect™ gearheads with zero-backlash Harmonic Drive® gearing are available with high reduction ratios, 50:1 to 160:1. CSF-GH and CSG-GH utilize our proprietary S tooth profile and provide high precision positioning (repeatability ±4 to ±10 arc-sec).  The greatest benefit of Harmonic Drive® gearing is the weight and space savings compared to other gearheads because it  consists of only three basic parts.
