Meat Processing Machines

At the heart of one of the simpler meat, poultry and cheese packaging machines in the food processing industry is the small, yet powerful Huco Dynatork Air Motor. These compact air motors are capable of precisely starting and stopping a roll of printed plastic bags used to package a wide variety of meat, poultry and cheese products. Offering high torque at variable low speeds, Dynatork air motors consume up to 80% less air than vane motors, providing significant cost savings even at maximum torque.

Supplied with an acetal housing for the washdown environment in this food processing application, the units are also available in aluminum as standard or cast iron for harsh environments. The motors excel in constant start-stop applications under load, displaying characteristics similar to stepper motors. By comparison, an electric motor will often burn out and a vane motor will stall out when subjected to these conditions. The operating principle is simple. Via an integral rotary valve, air up to 100 psi is supplied to each of three pistons. The free floating pistons transmit torque on start-up that can be adjusted via a pressure regulator.
