High precision gearing expert, Harmonic Drive, has strengthened its organisational structure to support its customers with the best possible technical information. The creation of five specialist teams will channel the range of technical knowledge at Harmonic Drive and strengthen its support of key markets.
The new expert teams cover all of the core sectors Harmonic Drive customers operate in, including Robotics, Handling and Automation, Machine Tool, Mechanical Engineering and Medical Technology, Optics and Precision Engineering, Aerospace, Defence and Special Environments.
“Pooling our technical knowledge means Harmonic Drive is ideally positioned to provide our customers across Europe with quality technical advice specific to their sector,” said Graham Mackrell, managing director of Harmonic Drive UK. “This means that we are able to quickly identify the best solutions for our customers’ needs, helping them to succeed.”
Bernd Wittman, Michael Krabiell and Erik Rörig make up the Robotics, Handling and Automation team, bringing together years of knowledge and experience in creating robots, automation systems and high quality drive technology.
The Machine Tool, Mechanical Engineering, and Medical Technology team, which consists of Thomas Reuber, Eric Schwenk, Sebastian Finhold, Reinhard Garstecki, and Friedrich Mann, specialises in drive solutions for a wide range of machine tools, including medical applications which require maximum precision.
The key focus of the Optics and Precision Engineering team is the move towards smaller high precision components, which places more demands on accurate machines and manufacturing. Michael Heins, Thomas Schmitz and Gerhard Möhring make up this team.
Finally, Martin Böhmer, Sebastin Müller and Peter Becker of the Aerospace, Defence and Special Environments team apply their special application knowledge to the combination of extreme environmental conditions combined with the highest reliability at zero maintenance.
“This new organisational structure will greatly benefit our clients in the UK and across Europe, as we have direct access to these market and product specialist teams,” said Mackrell. “We are committed to supporting our customers and helping them meet their goals.”
