New Motor and Gear Technologies Revealed – Hannover Messe 2019

This year at Hannover Messe 2019, Genesis is displaying a broader actuation offering, including LiveDrive™, the pioneering direct drive electric motors IEEE Spectrum named to its Top Tech of 2019 list, as well as unveiling our revolutionary, injection molded REFLEX™ Torque Amplifier.

These gearboxes – available in both plastic and steel versions – have low friction, low ratios and high backdrivability, enabling current-based torque sensing. The unique planet arrangement in our gears provide high strength and stiffness at a significantly reduced weight.
