No Product Contamination
Protect valuable product from contamination with no need for additional sealing.
Improve accuracy and repeatability, fully eliminating backlash inherent in any geared drivetrain.
No maintenance of the Actuator required and no stock of gear components and oil, reducing the total cost of ownership.
Higher Reliability and Reduced Downtime
No downtime due to gear replacement or performance loss over time. LiveDrive Actuators have high reliability, increasing the mean time before failure (MTBF) of the system and keeping production lines running.
LiveDrive Redefines the Standard for Cleanliness, Simplicity and Productivity
Many machines today are powered by servo Actuators or systems of belts and pulleys. Gearboxes are large, heavy, and filled with oil, while belts and pulley systems take up space, wear over time, and are difficult to mount. LiveDrive LDD actuators simplify the drivetrain of any machine and deliver higher productivity.

LiveDrive is a high torque density, direct drive actuator for robotics and automation machinery. As a direct drive actuator, loads can be directly coupled to the output of the actuator without additional transmission components (ie. belts or gears). Additionally, LiveDrive actuators are designed for applications where dynamic operation and positioning is required. In technical terms, a LiveDrive actuator is a brushless, permanent magnet, 3 phase synchronous motor. Compared with other servo motor technology, Live Drive technology delivers much higher torque at comparatively lower speed and therefore is best suited to these types of applications.
LiveDrive direct drive actuators can serve most DDR (direct drive rotary) applications with a lower volume and mass footprint than competing DDR motors. Examples include actuation in delta or SCARA robots, packaging machines, indexing or high speed positioning. With high torque and a compact form factor, LiveDrive actuators create new design possibilities for simple, compact and powerful machines
LiveDrive actuators can be configured as frameless motors as an engineered solution. Please contact Genesis for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, using a LiveDrive direct drive actuator instead of a geared servo motor can deliver the following advantages:
When considering a LiveDrive actuator for the application, it is important to consider the following:
Please contact Genesis for support in selecting a LiveDrive for your application at email@example.com.
Yes, LiveDrive can operate with typical industry servo drives in most cases. There are some important factors to consider when determining the compatibility of a drive with the LiveDrive actuator. These include but are not limited to: continuous and peak current, bus voltage, PWM frequency, encoder feedback and digital nameplate information written on the encoder or drive which may be required to recognize and operate the LiveDrive actuator when connected to the drive.
