Your company will be exhibiting at PACK Expo, what is it that makes this an important event for your company? 

The Packaging Machine industry is one of our key markets for our planetary gearheads.  It gives us a place to showcase a variety of our products all in one location, to a variety of folks looking for motion control solutions.  We enjoy meeting with both the attendees and exhibitors. This show provides a focused venue where we can reach many of our targets. And, it’s a great place to catch up with long-time customers and friends in the industry.


What can a visitor to your booth expect to see this year? 

Aside from the knowledgeable and affable staff from Harmonic Drive, we will have automated demonstrations of some of our new products.  Come see how our IP65 FHA Rotary Actuator withstands water being sprayed at it during the entire show!

Any new products you will be introducing? 

Yes, we have several. We are introducing our FHA-C-H IP65 actuator. With IP65 and 480V, the FHA actuator is well suited for packaging, and wash-down applications. We are also introducing a few new planetary gearheads with our Quick Connect® coupling. Our value series servo gearhead, HPN, is adding new two-stage ratios. HPN offers low backlash and quick delivery. Also on display will be our miniature planetary gearhead, the HP8. Harmonic Drive is also getting ready to launch an HPG Rack and Pinion set.  Stop by booth 6010 to see it in action.
