Harmonic Drive® precision component sets are the core motion control mechanisms. These zero backlash products offer the widest design flexibility. Products can be selected which offer the optimum dimension and performance based on the available volume within the customer-designed housing. High Torque, Ultra Flat, and Hollow Shaft Options are available. These high accuracy gearing components are often used as the core building block for custom high performance servo actuators and motion control mechanisms. Customer-supplied servo motors can be easily integrated into the design. Click here to use our Product Table Finder.

Cup Type Back to top
Features a flexspline with external gear teeth in the shape of a cup. Options available: Standard, high-torque, ultra-flat, lightweight, and big bore.
Pancake Back to top
Pancake gears consist of four main parts: Wave Generator, Flexspline, Dynamic Spline, and Circular Spline. Extremely flat and compact, these pancake gears offer the design engineer high ratios in extremely compact configurations. These low cost gears are ideal when price is a factor and zero-backlash is not required.
Silk Hat Back to top
The flexspline of the silk hat gears features a brim that looks very similar to a silk hat, hence the name. The brim acts as a perfect mounting surface, leaving a large through hole.
