#497. An epoch-making driving force transmission!

         Harmonic Drive“, made by an inventing genius, is an epoch-making driving force transmission!
Amazing motion control, “Harmonic Drive” was put into practical use after realizing its miniaturization and weight reduction.

Harmonic Drive is a driving force transmission taking advantage of elastic dynamics of metals. Its characteristics are below.

  • Simple structure and mechanism
  • High accuracy
  • Small number of components and ease of assembly
  • Small-sized and lightweight
  • Quiet operation

Because of these features, “Harmonic Drive” is utilized in many small robots.
