PISTON MOTORS

Power - that's what you get with a piston motor. When you need real power, then you should consider turning to the piston motor, which leverages the power of pistons to generate high displacement volume. Piston motors are used in certain types of hydraulic drive systems, along with various cylinders, actuators, and pumps. These kinds of hydraulic motors are commonly used to power large equipment (e.g. cranes, drilling apparatus) that can be found, for example, on construction sites, oil fields, as well as other environments that require heavy-duty gear of this nature. Depending on the specific variation you select, your piston motor will be able to deliver high torque or high speeds.

There are two hydraulic piston motor types: radial and axial. Let us explore the distinct features of each type of motor and examine how hydraulic piston motors work.
 

Radial piston motors

As the name might lead you to believe, this motor features a number of pistons arranged in a "star-like" radial pattern around an eccentric shaft that rotates. The rotation of the shaft puts the pistons into motion, which pushes the fluid through the system. The radial motor can itself be subdivided into two design types: those where the pistons push inward, and those where the pistons push outward. These motors are particularly good if you're looking for high torque and high displacement volume.
 

Axial piston motors

This is the most common variety of piston motor, and it is available in variable and fixed displacement types. Here, the up and down movement of the pistons situated inside the cylinder block generates the energy used to power the system. These motors are available on the market in bent axis and swash plate designs. Axial motors are substantially faster than radial types, sometimes reaching speeds of over 10,000 rpm.
