KYB Hydrostar Americas Corporation is a subsidiary of KYB Corporation with head offices located in Tokyo, Japan.
KYB Hydrostar specialises in hydraulics, with technology widely used in the aeronautical, automotive, construction and railway industries.
The KYB range of hydraulic components includes KYB Hydrostar motors. For instance, a radial piston low speed high torque (LSHT) hydraulic motor and track drive motors (a 2-speed Axial Piston drive motor with an integrated motor, valve and gearbox).
Moreover the range includes a mini-motion package, which is an electric over hydraulic linear actuator featuring a DC Motor.
KYB Hydrostar furthermore specialises in hydraulic pumps, valves and cylinders – all integrated into a compact unit, as well as: gear pumps, cylinders, control valves and mixer truck components. The latter features a variable displacement piston pump with a fixed displacement piston motor.
