Rotary Actuator Application Benefits

Application Examples


Harmonic Motion
Ideal transfer system providing maximum speed with sinusoidal acceleration and deceleration. Angles at ends of rotary actuator stroke must be 90 degrees.


Lever Motion
Sliding doors on machinery


Rotary Harmonic Motion
High speed rotary reciprocation is best accomplished with harmonic rotary motion. This system provides sinusoidal acceleration and deceleration. Angles at ends of rotary actuator stroke must be 90 degrees.

Two distinct advantages over cylinders
Cylinder rods are subject to side forces and bending. Turn-act rotary actuators are designed for side loads.

Cylinder rods corrode and collect contaminates. When retracting the rod wears the bushing and seal leading to cylinder failure. Rotary actuators eliminate this potential problem.

Application Examples


Escapement Feeding


Conveyor Stop
Actuator is underneath and lifts one of conveyor rollers to create stop


Conveyor Transfer


Lever Clamp
