Hydraulic Rotary Actuators – SM4

The Eckart SM4 rotary actuator is a heavy-duty and highly-customizable rotary actuator designed for the toughest and most-demanding applications.

Because of its torque, angle of rotation, pressure range, positioning accuracy, stability of position, type of attachment, and its dimensions, the Eckart SM4 rotary actuator can be used in a wide range of applications. Not only is the SM4 a compact and robust unit, but it is also wear-resistant and efficient. The SM4 can be configured with an industry-leading fine and controllable end cushioning curve. Additionally, the SM4 unit can be driven via “black and white” or with proportional, control, and servo valves. For the purpose of subsequent driving, the piston end-positions at the linear cylinder and at the rotary actuator can be scanned via electronic end-position acknowledgement mechanisms. Ultimately, with the SM4, you have a high-performing product that is both robust and compact, allowing for optimal adaptation depending on your specific requirements.
