Harmonic Drive will be showing its industry-leading precision servo actuators, gearheads and gear component sets in booth 214 at the Robotics Summit and Showcase. Click here to view the exhibitor directory for the Robotics Summit.
Taking place May 23-24 in Boston, the Robotics Summit is a multifaceted educational event dedicated to addressing the technical issues involved with developing commercial robotics and intelligent systems.
Harmonic Drive will also be presenting a session called “Designing Robots from the Inside Out.” The talk will discuss the importance of defining the specific requirements of your robot at the onset of design. Attendees will learn how customized solutions can be the key to success.
Here’s a quick look at some of the products Harmonic Drive will showcase at the Robotics Summit.
Meca500 6-axis Robot Arm
Come see the smallest 6-axis robot arm at Harmonic Drive’s booth. We are happy to have a live demo of the Meca500 ultra-compact six-axis robot arm! The Meca500 is from one of Harmonic Drive’s great customers, Mecademic.
Based in Montreal, Mecademic designs, develops and manufactures the most compact and accurate small six-axis industrial robots on the market. Built with precision machined aluminum and zero-backlash gearboxes, the Meca500 is the most precise six-axis robot arm, boasting a repeatability of 5 μm.
Not only is the Meca500 more than twice as small as other small industrial robots, but its controller is embedded in its base, instead of hosted in a bulky external cabinet. The Meca500 is a plug‑and‑work automation component, so you can spend more time innovating your product or optimizing your production line.
Harmonic Drive Supermini Servo Actuator
Harmonic Drive will have its supermini servo actuator on display in its booth. Small enough to fit inside the finger of a robotic hand, these servo actuators operate with a wide range of drivers.
Weighing just 31g, these mini actuators combine a zero backlash Harmonic Drive precision gear, a brushless servo motor and an incremental encoder. The RSF supermini is just 13mm square and 47mm long. Peak torque .13-1.4 Nm, max speed 100-333 rpm.
