Helical Spline Hydraulic Rotary Actuators:
Our rotary actuators are the helical spline design. This means, a piston and a helix, or sliding spline, work together to convert the linear motion of the piston into rotational motion. Composed of two moving parts and some form of housing, the sliding helical splined gear concept within the actuator is used in many applications where a rotary movement is required. Helical Spline Actuators function when the piston is axially displaced using hydraulic pressure causing simultaneous rotation of the piston. Standard amounts of rotation are 90°, 180°, and 360°; but are available generally up to 720° or more. Additional rotation is created by making the spline gears longer while maintaining the same diameter. The primary benefit to this type product compared to alternative designs such as linkages using hydraulic cylinders (linear actuators) is its compact design.
Eckart is a supplier and rotary actuator manufacturer for various applications including construction, mechanical, marine, and industrial.
