Axial Piston Motors

Axial piston motors are similar in design to axial piston pumps. Inside the pump there is a cylindrical rotating part (piston drum) with axial piston bores. Pistons are inserted into these bores and are supported axially on an inclined sliding disk. The piston shoes are usually made of a bronze alloy to achieve high sliding properties with low wear. Pressure or suction on the individual pistons causes the rotating part and thus the shaft of the motor to start rotating. Axial piston motors are used in industrial applications (e.g. heavy machinery) as well as in mobile machinery (especially traction drives). They can have constant or variable displacement. Further information on axial piston motors can also be found in our hydraulic blog.
