Rotary Actuators

Conventional cylinders are often impractical for joint pivoting operations due to weight, space, and/or movement limitations. Rotary actuators can be integrated in the joint without the need for long stroke lengths required by cylinders. They are available in a number of configurations to suit a variety of joint pivoting applications.

Rotary actuators have a number of advantages and unique options:

  • High instantaneous torque in either direction of rotation
  • Not limited to 90 degree pivot arc
  • Shafts can make multiple 360 degree rotations and intermediate stops
  • Available with position feedback
  • Stainless steel construction available
  • Cool running operation

Typical Applications:

  • Mixing
  • Clamping
  • Grip and flip
  • Labeling
  • Indexing
  • Lifting
  • Transferring, turning, and positioning containers in material handling equipment
  • Operating valves and brakes
