Material handling

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.

Advantages

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.
