Genesis Robotics reveals 110mm radial LiveDrive at Hannover Messe 2018

April 30, 2018

Genesis Robotics and Motion Technologies (Genesis Robotics) has today announced a smaller, 110mm version of the LiveDrive TM actuator. This new, compact radial flux motor was developed to support a wider range of robotic designs and will be officially revealed at the 2018 Hannover Messe tradeshow in Germany on April 23.

The “LiveDrive 110” provides comparable high torque-to-weight, safe and precise actuation as the 250mm LiveDrive actuator, but its small size makes the actuator available for more versatile applications within and beyond robotics. The LiveDrive actuator suite leverages three foundational discoveries that contribute to the proprietary technology: amplified magnetics, structural-magnetic synergy and unusually high thermal conductivity.

“The latest iteration of the LiveDrive is small enough to encompass a robust solution that creates higher quality movements from machines across multiple industries,” said James Klassen, CTO and co-founder of Genesis Robotics. “Geared actuators have remained largely unchanged for over 50 years and we’ve designed a solution that solves the challenges associated with traditional geared motors.”

Klassen added, “The LiveDrive is so precise and safe that it enables robots to finally interact with humans in life-changing applications like exoskeletons to help the disabled walk, or assistive arms to aid with heavy lifting for seniors.”
