Axial Piston Motors

Hydraulic axial piston motors (plunger type motors) are generally used for high quality rotating hydraulic drive systems.

Whereas the speed of hydraulic pumps typically ranges from 1200 to 1800 rpm, the machinery to be driven by the hydraulic motor often requires a much lower speed. This means that a gearbox is usually needed when a hydraulic axial plunger motor is used.

Hydraulic axial piston motors are used when a continuously adjustable swept volume is needed and they are the most commonly used in hydraulic systems.
