Acrodyne Pty Ltd has been the Australian and New Zealand agents for Harmonic Drive Systems offering precision motion control solutions for over twenty years.
For many years now, Groundprobe have been designing and manufacturing slope stability radar systems.
Slope stability radar systems are commonly used in the real-time monitoring of the stability of rock walls such as those at open-cut mine sites.
Primarily this system offers increased safety to the mine operators and increases mine profitability at the same time.
The slope stability radar continuously and systematically scans the rock face detecting any movement, which could result in a catastrophic collapse.
The system requires accuracy as well as reliability for operation and the SHF series Harmonic drive was chosen for the precise movement of the rotating and inclining radar dish.
This accuracy is due to the inherent ‘Zero Backlash’, which the Harmonic drive is known for in industrial environments.
