Feb. 22, 2016 – Harmonic Drive has introduced the “ultra-flat, zero-backlash” CSF-2UP gear unit, which it says features a large cross-roller bearing with high-moment stiffness.
The CSF-2UP gearheads are ideally suited for robots or manipulators requiring an ultra-compact solution, says the company. Complete with a housing and precision output bearing, Harmonic Drive gear units are “lightweight and extremely compact.” Gear ratios of 30:1, 50:1, and 100:1 are available in each size, offering the machine designer a selection of speed and torque specifications. Motor mounting adapters are also available to match the designer’s choice of motor.
