Other than HD (Harmonic Drive), the following companies were in attendance:
Robotis Co. Ltd
They were demonstrating their range of servo motors and robots for education.
There was a large banner with a cute robot pictured saying “I’m Truly Sorry.. But I won’t be able to replace You”
which is topical, given the recent debate about robots taking away peoples jobs.
They had two of their large ThorMang3 humanoid robots (Fig. 2-3). The style of the head, combined with a black and red color scheme makes this particular model look a bit more menacing than earlier versions.
They were also showing a video of an older product, the DARwIn-OP small humanoid robot doing a bit of downhill skiing.
They had a 6-DOF table mounted manipulator with a two jaw parallel gripper and camera-in-hand (Fig. 4). It was grasping blocks labeled with fiducial markers.
Nidec Copal Electronics Corp. / Fujisoft
This company was advertising their DC motors and force-torque sensors designed for service robots.
They worked with Toyota on servo motors and torque sensors for the T-HR3 humanoid robot (Fig. 11).
Also at this booth was Fujisoft, an ODM for products like robot toys.
Shenzhen Zhaowei Machinery & Electronics Co. Ltd
This company sells DC motors and gearboxes (gearhead / reducer).
They also have some interesting custom designed gearboxes for specific products.
