Harmonic Drive to exhibit at CES 2017, Jan 5-9, in the Robotics Marketplace - Booth #41564

Paralympian Athlete, Helgi Sveinsson will be participating with us wearing the Össur POWER KNEE™ motor powered knee joint!

Peabody, MA, January 4, 2017 -Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control will be exhibiting at CES 2017 in Las Vegas in the Robotics Marketplace at the Sands Convention Center. Harmonic Drive® products are relied upon every day throughout the robotics community. Come see a live demo of the Össur POWER KNEE! The POWER KNEE utilizes a special component set from Harmonic Drive.


We are happy to welcome the folks from Össur with their POWER KNEE prosthesis to our booth. The POWER KNEE is the world's first and only motor-powered, artificially intelligent prosthesis for above-knee amputees. Come see how it works, live, in-person. Paralympian Helgi Sveinsson will be on-site for live demonstrations throughout the show.
Helgi Sveinsson was a talented handball player and all-around athlete when he lost his leg above the knee in 1999 due to bone cancer. In 2011, he was introduced to the world of Paralympic sport and hasn't looked back since! He won a gold medal in the worlds first Cybathlon in Switzerland.

Founded in 1971, Össur has wide-ranging expertise in the development, production, and sale of non-invasive orthopedics. Renowned worldwide as pioneers of advanced orthopedic technology, Össur's mission is to improve people's mobility. For more information, visit: ossur.com

We will also have several products on display. We will be showcasing some of our new products such as the zero backlash, ultra-flat CSF-2UP gearhead! The CSF-2UP mini gearheads are ideally suited for small robots or manipulators requiring an ultra-compact solution. These new high-torque, zero-backlash gear units have an ultra-flat configuration and feature a large cross-roller bearing with high-moment stiffness.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with  Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
