In modern robotic applications, space comes at a premium. Power density continues to be a leading factor in robotic applications, although it is often compromised by the cabling and hardware needed to implement the power and control systems.
During the Robotics Summit & Expo (May 10-11 in Boston), Harmonic Drive’s Andrew Zucker will be discussing the “Simplification of Advanced Motion Control Using Integrated Servo Drives.” Taking place on May 10 from 2-2:45 PM, the session will explore how to simplify the design of a robotic joint without compromising performance, reliability, or advanced motion control features that normally come at the cost of bulky cabling and electronics.
Harmonic Drive will also be displaying its latest motion control technologies in booth 101 on the Robotics Summit expo floor. The company engineers and manufactures precision servo actuators, gearheads, gear component sets, and more.
Harmonic Drive strain wave gear and actuator products are customizable. With over 60 years of experience, the high-precision, zero-backlash Harmonic Drive strain wave gears and Harmonic Planetary gears have and continue to play critical roles in robotics, spaceflight applications, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, factory automation equipment, medical diagnostics and surgical robotics.
You can find the full agenda for the Robotics Summit here. The Robotics Summit & Expo is the premier event for commercial robotics developers. There will be nearly 70 industry-leading speakers sharing their development expertise on stage during the conference, with 150-plus exhibitors on the show floor showcasing their latest enabling technologies, products and services that help develop commercial robots. There also will be a career fair, networking opportunities and more.
