DC brush torque motors

High torque, low speed motors for direct drive operation.

Features and benefits

DC brush torque motors provide a simple solution for systems making a limited number of turns all along their life (e.g. emergency actuation and ammunition actuation systems). They power high torque direct drives while preventing the need for a reduction gear.

  • Good dynamic bandwidth thanks to low mechanical time constant
  • Custom rotor and stator hubs to perfectly fit your system, allowing easier integration
  • Simple operation from DC source ON/OFF switching


Used primarily on military applications including:

  • Ammunition activation mechanism
  • Ammunition fins actuation
  • Ammunition/missile seeker head actuation
  • Emergency actuator
