The HPF Series: New High-Performance Hollow Shaft Gear Unit from Harmonic Drive

High Torque Outputs and Flexible Installation Options for Heavy-Duty Industrial Applications

January 23, 2023


Harmonic Drive, a leading provider of precision motion control solutions, is proud to announce the release of its HPF series of hollow shaft gear units. Designed for heavy-duty industrial applications, these advanced gear units offer high torque outputs and flexible installation options, making them ideal for use in demanding environments.

The HPF series hollow shaft gear units provide exceptional torque density and positional accuracy, making them suitable for a wide range of industrial applications including robotics, packaging, and material handling. They feature a high torque output, with maximum continuous torque ratings up to 1000 Nm and maximum peak torque ratings up to 1500 Nm.

The unique hollow shaft design allows for easy integration and installation in tight spaces, while also allowing for the passage of cables, hoses and other mechanical parts through the gear unit. Additionally, the hollow shaft design also provides a high torsional rigidity, making it suitable for high-speed applications.

Built with state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and materials, the HPF series gear units are durable and reliable even in the most demanding environments. They also feature low backlash and low noise operation, making them ideal for applications where precision and quiet operation are a must.

The HPF Harmonic Planetary® gear unit delivers High-Torque and High-Accuracy with a Hollow Shaft design. The gearhead incorporates continuous backlash compensation that ensures low backlash throughout the life of the gear. An extra-large Cross Roller bearing serves as the output flange and can directly support large loads with exceptionally high moment stiffness. The large coaxial hollow shaft allows cables, shafts, ball screws or lasers to pass directly through the axis of rotation.

Features include:

  • Hollow Shaft: 25mm to 32mm
  • Available in 2 Frame Sizes
  • Peak Torque: 100Nm to 200Nm
  • Ratio: 11:1
  • Backlash <3 arc-min
  • Extra-large Cross Roller Output Bearing
