Cup Style Harmonic Solutions

ico-radio-antenna Precision Motion.

Cone Drive’s Harmonic Solutions® (also known as strain wave gearing) is an in-line motion control solution consisting of three main components: a wave generator, flexspline, and a circular spline. Cone Drive is one of the few harmonic solution developers in the world. Our team of engineers is ready to design, spec, produce, and test a harmonic gearing solution for your specific application



Key Features
  • Sizes: 14, 17, 20, 25, 32
  • Flex spline sizes: deep cup
  • Configuration: gear set or gear head
  • Interface: metric
  • Continuous Output Torque: Up to 196 Nm
  • Peak Output Torque: Up to 900 Nm
  • Gear Ratios: 50:1 to 160:1; ratio offerings are size dependent
  • Input Options: Oldham coupling, servo motor interface, stepper motor interface

Harmonic gearing is low to zero backlash by design. It provides high transmission accuracy and can support a high ratio reduction in a single stage with lower inertia. The highly accurate, torque dense design makes harmonic gearing the perfect solution for robotic and other positioning control applications.


The Cone Drive Product Development Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility directly adjacent to our Traverse City, Michigan manufacturing location. The lab has the capacity to test a wide range of gear reducer products, for both Cone Drive products as well as those manufactured by other companies. The lab includes capability to run a wide variety of tests including load testing for evaluating reducer performance and operating efficiency.
