Genesis Robotics’ LiveDrive LDD 1800 series combines high torque density, cleanliness, and reliability.
Vancouver-based Genesis Robotics & Motion Technologies launched its LiveDrive LDD 1800 Series, 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). Available in a range of configurations and performance options, the actuator’s standard models include four sizes, various voltage levels and support integration with third-party servo drives. Less than half the length of a typical servo-gearhead drivetrain, LiveDrive actuators meet the Collaborative Robot Technical Specification ISO/TS 15066 and feature a washdown-ready IP67 enclosure.
