A speed reducer slows down an industrial robot by exporting power produced by a servo motor in high-speed rotation through the pinion on the input shaft, which meshes with the gear wheel on the output shaft to deliver more torque. In terms of precision, load, and service life, industrial robots require exceptionally efficient reducers, which are the most technically challenging of these basic components.
Harmonic and RV speed reducers are the most common for industrial robots. Harmonic reducers, which are made up of a wave generator, a flexible wheel, and a rigid wheel, work on the idea that the wave generator uses the flexible wheel to produce regulated elastic deformation, and the flexible wheel and rigid wheel are meshed to transmit power and lower speed. Harmonic reducers are frequently employed in light load circumstances, such as tiny load robots or forearms, wrists, or hands of big robots, because to their excellent motion precision, large gear ratio, low weight, small size, and low transmission inertia.
Harmonic Drive was the world’s largest harmonic reducer provider and was one of the first specialists in research and development, design, manufacture, and sales of harmonic drive and unique drive technologies around the world. Harmonic Drive focuses on developing, manufacturing, and selling harmonic reducers that are used in a wide range of industries, including robots, CNC machine tools, aerospace, and printing machinery, as well as medical devices, measurement and analysis instruments, and precision packaging machinery, and controls nearly half of the global robot-use harmonic reducer market.

Industrial robots used on vehicle assembly lines rely heavily on precision reduction gears. These gears allow industrial robots to extract a significant amount of power from a small motor while also allowing them to perform more precise motions. The robots would be unable to perform the forceful, quick, and accurate operations required to assemble the cars and other vehicles that we see every day all around the world if they did not have them. For more than 30 years, Nabtesco has been the global leader in precision reduction gears, and as an expert in the sector, it has continually achieved technological advancement. Precision reduction gears from Nabtesco are compact and lightweight while maintaining excellent accuracy and stiffness. As a result, they are employed not only in industrial robots but also in a variety of other applications.
