New air motors from Chicago Pneumatic provide simple yet reliable power

28 May, 2020

Chicago Pneumatic has introduced a new range of air motors to its portfolio. The comprehensive air motor range combines multiple configurations, a compact and well-balanced design and excellent performance in harsh environments, enabling OEM and machine builders to improve the efficiency of their systems.

“We are excited to include air motors as part of our product portfolio for the first time,” says Damien Feller, global product marketing manager, spares & solutions, at Chicago Pneumatic. “This addition to our catalog is ideal for OEMs and machine builders looking for simple yet reliable power in applications including pipe processing, mixing, blending, filling, metering in food and chemical processing, and machine maintenance. The new range complements our existing range of pneumatic products and tools and reinforces our position as leaders in industrial pneumatic solutions, so customers can be assured they are receiving the highest quality product and support.”


There are nine models of motors in the range, providing power from 0.16 kW (0.21HP) to 1.8 kW (2.45HP), maximum output torques of up to 299 Nm (221 ft.lbs) and speeds of up to 21,500 rpm. They are easy to install and use providing users with high versatility based on their needs. Power can be adjusted easily by regulating the air supply, pressure or throttling, and users have a choice of progressive or immediate start to best suit their application.

The motors are efficient thanks to a lightweight and compact design. They feature internal planetary gears which contribute to a long, slim design, and the motors are up to six times smaller and lighter than electric motors of equivalent output power meaning OEMs can reduce the overall weight of their machines. Output inherently adjusts to match the applied load, which further enhances efficiency, and low friction blades, which are a lubrication-free design enable users to improve their sustainability. They are a cost-effective solution compared to other motor types, with low installation, operation and maintenance costs.
