LDX roadmap

Move Payloads Faster

With up to 3x more torque to mass than competing direct drives, LiveDrive LDX can help you increase acceleration and payload across a broad range of applications.

Reduce Machine Weight & Footprint

With a more compact footprint, LiveDrive LDX allows you to implement more flexible systems with less space to drive more value from your machinery and production lines.

Open New Markets

LiveDrive's concentrated torque enables the use of direct drive motors where they were not feasible before. The large through hole enables fast, simple, and flexible integration with standard and custom windings available for any application.

Direct Drive Superiority

LiveDrive can replace geared solutions with the direct drive advantage: improved precision, faster acceleration, no maintenance, no backlash, faster assembly, and reduced build costs
