New HPF Hollow Shaft Planetary Gear from Harmonic Drive®

The new HPF Precision Hollow Shaft Planetary Gear from Harmonic Drive® was designed based on the popular HPG Harmonic Planetary® gearhead. The large coaxial hollow shaft allows cables, shafts, ball screws or lasers to pass directly through the axis of rotation. The HPF also incorporates a large output flange for mounting the driven load.

The new HPF Precision Hollow Shaft Planetary Gear from Harmonic Drive® was designed based on the popular HPG Harmonic Planetary® gearhead. The large coaxial hollow shaft allows cables, shafts, ball screws or lasers to pass directly through the axis of rotation. The HPF also incorporates a large output flange for mounting the driven load.


This flange is integrated with a robust Cross-Roller Bearing which can support high axial, radial and moment loads without the need for additional support bearings.

The precision HPF planetary gear is also available in our SHA Series Hollow Shaft Brushless Actuators as a standard product. The low ratio planetary gear allows the SHA actuator to achieve higher speeds and still deliver precise positioning.

Key Features
• Hollow Shaft Structure
• Coaxial input and output shafts

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
