Design Engineering

Our engineering expertise is built upon decades of harmonic gearing and industrial controls design experience. That experience translates into the high quality performance and reliable long life our products are known for. Conic introduced the harmonic differential in 1968; invented the right angle harmonic differential in 1999, developed single flank positional accuracy testing over 20 years ago, and has successfully designed and introduced hundreds of harmonic gearing, analog and digital control products to markets around the globe. Today, we utilize CAD, FEA, and CAM are part of our standard design process and have inhouse metallurgical sampling and testing, rapid prototyping, and dynamic testing platforms. We are flexible to modify our standard product designs and to assist you in your applications.

Manufacturing Engineering

 

For over 25 years, we have been developing and fine-tuning manufacturing techniques and processes for harmonic gearing technology. From fixtures, to programs, to custom tooling, our manufacturing techniques are aimed at producing consistent, superb quality components and assemblies. The longevity and performance of harmonics is highly dependent not just upon the harmonic splines and bearings but also on the mating housings and the final assembly. No company has greater experience in manufacturing harmonic gearboxes than Conic, and we enjoy a reputation of delivering products that excel in performance and life, some of which exceed 20 years.

Research & Development

 

We maintain an active Applied Research and Development program separate from our Product Design Program. Our R&D projects are aimed at advancing the state-of-the-art in our technologies and in developing new technologies for market introduction. Programs may run 12-24 months or longer. We also welcome and are involved in collaborate research with universities.
