A Challenge to Design of a New Harmonic Drive Device
A new silk-hat type of harmonic drive device (HDD) with arc flexspline (FS) structure is developed. Loaded gear contact analysis (LGCA) and stress calculations are made for it with three-dimensional, finite element method (3D-FEM). Basic performances and strengths tests are also made. It is found that the new structure almost has the same performances and strength as the old one.
