Harmonic Drive to exhibit at CES 2018, Jan 9-12, in the Robotics Marketplace - Booth #25843

Featuring exoskeleton from suitX and mobile robot from Motiv Robotics!

Peabody, MA, January 2, 2018 -Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control will be exhibiting at CES 2018 in Las Vegas in the Robotics Marketplace in South Hall, booth 25843. Harmonic Drive® products are relied upon every day throughout the robotics community. Come see a live demo of the RoboMantis mobile robot from Motiv Robotics. Attendees will also get an up-close look at the Phoenix exoskeleton suit from suitX.


We are thrilled to welcome the folks from Motiv Robotics with their RoboMantis mobile robot. This robot has been designed to perform in a wide variety of environments and to virtually extend a human presence into inhospitable places. The hybrid mobility system integrates both wheeled and quadrupedal locomotion modalities allowing the robot to traverse practically any terrain efficiently.

Motiv Robotics, located in Pasadena, CA is a renowned provider of advanced robotic systems for industrial application, disaster relief, defense systems and extreme environments. For more information, visit: motivrobotics.com

Harmonic Drive is also excited to welcome the team from suitX with their Phoenix exoskeleton. The Phoenix exoskeleton is the world's lightest and most advanced exoskeleton designed to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile. In the clinic, at home, and in the workplace Phoenix has successfully enabled many individuals to stand up, walk about, and speak to peers eye-to-eye. Come see this life-changing exoskeleton.

Harmonic Drive will have several samples of our high-performance gears and actuators on display. We will be premiering our upcoming ultra-flat actuators, ideal for mobile robots and exoskeletons. Stop by for a sneak peek! We will also 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. The new high-torque, zero-backlash gear units have an ultra-flat configuration and feature a large cross-roller bearing with high-moment stiffness.

Featured Product

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
