Need the torque of geared piston air motors without the size, weight, and low rpm? MODEC has a solution.

Piston air motors are known for their high starting torque and stall torque, and it is this that gives them their principal advantage. However, compared to vane air motors, their weight, size, and low rpm can be significant disadvantages, especially in portable applications. MODEC, however, utilises the high power density, small volume, and pure torsional reactions of planetary gearing systems to achieve high torque geared air motors without the compromises inherent to piston air motor designs. With this, MODEC achieves a product superior to alternative technologies in many respects, making for optimal performance in a wide range of applications.

Starting torque is often low for rotary vane air motors, and, unlike geared piston air motors, varies dependent upon the position relative to the injection point at which the vanes stop moving during their previous usage. This can make them unsuitable when high starting torque is required, as the lowest value of their variable starting torque must be used. However, MODEC's products effectively combine the advantages of both kinds of compressed air motors through several means: planetary gearing, flow reduction, pressure control systems, and coupling rings (for extra high torque). As such, MODEC offers comparable performance to geared piston air motors but at a smaller size, lower weight, and with high speed capabilities.
