Revolutionary Direct-Drive Actuator

July 8, 2021

Offering an extensive range of configurations and performance options, LiveDrive LDD 1800 Series Direct Drive Actuators eliminate the need for gearing and are redefining the next generation of parallel robots and precision machinery.


LiveDrive is a high-torque, compact, direct-drive solution designed for robots and machines in the food, packaging, pharmaceuticals, and electronics industries. It reduces maintenance requirements while increasing uptime and reliability. With no need for gears, belts or lubrication, the actuators simplify the drivetrain, delivering increased performance and lower total cost of ownership.


A LiveDrive LDD 1800 Series actuator is less than half the length of a typical servo-gearhead drivetrain enabling greater use of machine work cells and factory floor space. LiveDrive’s washdown-ready IP67 enclosure allows for easy cleanup. Importantly, the actuators do not require a gearbox, removing the risk of oil leakage or contamination, as well as reducing downtime, inspection, and maintenance requirements.
