DRRD / Pneumatic rotary drive


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Pneumatic rotary drives with twin pistons operate on the rack-and-pinion principle. This converts linear motion into a rotary motion. The new generation DRRD offers an innovative bearing system with large-diameter bearings, an integrated pinion and direct fitting into the housing, which allows very high robustness and accuracy to be achieved. Available in a variety of sizes with torque ratings from 0.2 to 110 Nm, the DRRD has a wide range of applications in the fields of handling and assembly technology. The minimalist design visually emphasizes the direction of motion of the gear racks.
