WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Harmonic Drive Precision Strain Wave Reducer Gearboxes and RV and RD Reducers: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2018 to 2024.  The 2018 study has 230 pages, 141 tables and figures.  The leading vendors in the harmonic drive industry have invested in high-quality technology and processes to develop leading edge reducer strain relief gearbox capability.

Harmonic drive market driving forces relate primarily to the implementation of speed reduction capability for robots and wind turbines initially, providing industrial controls that are compelling.  The harmonic drive is used in situations where smooth, efficient gear operation is needed.  Initial applications are in robotics, aerospace and solar tracking, the materials used in these applications can wear and break if the gearing in a motor is rough.  Harmonic gear vendors offer a unique gear tooth profile that optimizes the tooth engagement.
