Air motors are frequently used in material handling applications. Examples are conveyor belts, manipulators and turntables. The motors are often used in combination with a gearbox for high torques and low speeds of rotation. On the picture there are two compact piston air motors used on manipulators for tipping and transferring wind-shields for assembling trucks.
OF MATERIAL HANDLING
- Easy adjustable torque and speed;
- Can be stalled under load without damage to the motor;
- When the load rises, the speed will drop which results in a higher output torque
- Suitable in dirty and damp environments
- Low maintenance.
