Harmonic Drive to Demo Meca500 Arm at RoboBusiness

The Meca500 is a compact, 6-axis robot arm that will be at Harmonic Drive’s booth at RoboBusiness.

Built with precision machined aluminum and zero-backlash gearboxes from Harmonic Drive, the Meca500 is the most precise six-axis robot arm, boasting a repeatability of 5 μm.

The new six-axis industrial robot is ultra-compact. In fact, it is more than twice as small as other small industrial robots, but its controller is embedded in its base, instead of hosted in a bulky external cabinet.

Harmonic Drive is proud to be a platinum sponsor of RoboBusiness 2018.

Don’t miss your chance to see this robot in action in Santa Clara, Calif., on Wednesday, Sept. 26. All attendees are welcome to join the 4th Annual C. Walton Musser Industry Cocktail Opening Reception. Register now!
