Piston motors are available in axial and radial types. We also stock fixed and variable displacement axial piston motors that operate at high, medium or low speeds, with a bent axis or swash plate. The piston motors we stock are explained in further detail below.
- Bent axis, fixed displacement piston motor: This motor has the same structural principles as the fixed displacement piston pump with a bent axis. The variable displacement type is also available in our stock. The motor can have a bent axis angle of up to 40 degrees and is generally suitable for high-speed operation.
- Swash plate piston motor: This high-speed motor is based on a structure similar to that of a fixed displacement swash plate pump. The motor can provide a good low-speed performance when it starts, too.
- Eccentric radial piston motor: This motor is widely known as star-shaped motor. It has several fixed cylinders situated perpendicularly on the output shaft in a radial pattern. The flow is fed or discharged to and from the cylinders through a distributor valve, which is connected to the shaft with a swivel joint. When hydraulic pressure is applied to the piston, it reciprocates and pushes the eccentric cam on the shaft to produce torque. This motor is designed for low-speed, high-torque application.
- Multi-stroke radial piston motor: This motor has a piston placed in the direction of the radius of the shaft with a cam roller. The piston moves on the patterned cam ring to produce torque. This motor can offer a larger displacement capacity than that of any other hydraulic motor. It is often used in winches and crushing machines.
