Need compact piston air motors for their high starting torque? MODEC air motors have this too – but without piston motors’ disadvantages.

All air motors manufacturers will always love to tell you about the benefits associated with their own designs, yet it is important to understand that compact air motors can be very different from one another. Without entering the details, there are a few big differences between piston-type air motors and vane-type air motors.
Piston-type air motors are usually larger, complex, heavier, more expensive and usually compensate a relatively low RPM with a high starting torque and a low air consumption.
One could say that Vane-type air motors are their opposite: Lighter, smaller and rather simple, they can reach high RPM, however they tend to suffer from low starting torque and usually consume more air.
These features are to be known in order to implement the right compact air motor system.

And yet again, MODEC manages to let you have your cake and eat it too!
This air motor manufacturer offers vane-type motors that feature all the main advantages of typical vane-type air motors (High RPM, small size, lightness, simplicity, etc.) and also pack a very high starting torque, thanks to a combination of cutting-edge technologies. As far as air-consumption is concerned, MODEC also offers workplace component designs that can enable energy savings comparable to compact piston air motors, or even greater.

MODEC compact geared air motors have achieved the impossible: combining high torque with all the other advantages of vane-type motors to make it the ultimate air motor.
The planetary gear box packed in these motors, coupled with the high power density, torsional reactions and small volume, has made this challenge possible, resulting in a perfect motor that proposes relatively high RPM and high starting torque.
If that wasn’t enough, MODEC has thought even further ahead; in addition to this planetary gearing system, a torque limitation system limits torque in order to prevent any damage to the tool and to guarantee the user’s safety. A coupling ring can also be used in addition to the air motor in order to work on particularly torque-requiring applications, while still being compact and small-sized.

It appears rather obvious by now that compact air operated motors come with a clear price advantage over piston motors, yet it is also true that their greater air consumption can prove costly on the long run. Once again, MODEC has found the solution to solve the issue, and it’s probably the most interesting MODEC innovation so far. In addition to their impressively low maintenance and repair program cost, the ATEX certification, and all other advantages stated above, MODEC’s systems have a constant energy usage, whether the compressed air engines are running or not. This solution allows for an intensive use of all of MODEC’s motors without any cost increase.
