Electro-Hydraulic Stepping Motors

An electro-hydraulic stepper motor (EHSM) is a device, which uses a small electrical stepper motor to control the huge power available from a hydraulic motor (Figure 4.10). It consists of three components: 1. Electrical stepper motor 2. Hydraulic servo valve … Continue reading

Limited Rotation Hydraulic Motor

A limited rotation hydraulic motor provides a rotary output motion over a finite angle. This device produces a high instantaneous torque in either direction and requires only a small amount of space and simple mountings. Rotary motors consist of a … Continue reading

Hydraulic Radial Piston Motors

Radial piston motors produce very high torque at low speed. They are used as wheel motors for large equipment. Pistons operate in radial bores in a stationary cylinder block. The surrounding housing rotates (Fig. 5.18). The rotating housing has two … Continue reading

Hydraulic Bent Axis Motor Design

The piston shaft (tapered section shown in Fig. 5.15) does not provide the linkage that ensures that the cylinder block rotates with the output shaft. This linkage is provided with another mechanism. Different manufacturers use various mechanisms to develop this … Continue reading

Hydraulic Bent Axis Motors

Bent axis motors were developed to improve the operating and stall torque efficiencies of high-speed motors. The design (Fig. 5.15) operates in a manner similar to that of the axial piston design. A series of cylinders are mounted around the … Continue reading

Hydraulic Geroler Motor Performance Characteristics

The Char-Lynn 10,000 series motor with 40.6 in3/rev displacement was chosen for an example. (Notice that this displacement is approximately 10 times the displacement of the high-speed motors previously studied.) This motor has a maximum speed of 254 rpm for … Continue reading
