Housing: The pump's housing is the main outer casing that encloses and protects the internal components.
It is typically made of durable materials such as cast iron or steel, ensuring strength and resistance to external forces.
Drive Shaft: The drive shaft connects the pump to the power source, usually an engine or motor. It transfers rotational energy from the power source to the internal components, enabling the pump to operate.
Cylinder Block: The cylinder block houses the pistons and cylinder bores. It is precisely machined to ensure tight tolerances and smooth operation. The cylinder block's design allows the pistons to reciprocate within the cylinder bores, generating hydraulic pressure.
Pistons: The A4VG series features multiple pistons arranged radially within the cylinder block. These pistons are responsible for generating the axial movement necessary for pumping hydraulic fluid. They are typically made of high-strength materials such as steel or ceramic to withstand high pressures.
Swashplate: The swashplate is a key component that translates the rotary motion of the drive shaft into the reciprocating motion of the pistons. By adjusting the angle of the swashplate, the displacement of the pump can be varied, allowing for precise control of the hydraulic flow.
Valve Plate: The valve plate is located between the cylinder block and the swashplate. It contains the necessary channels and ports to control the flow of hydraulic fluid to and from the cylinder bores. The valve plate plays a crucial role in directing the pressurized fluid to the appropriate outlet.
Bearings: Bearings are essential for supporting and aligning the rotating components of the pump. They reduce friction and ensure smooth operation. The A4VG series incorporates high-quality bearings that provide reliable performance and extended service life.
Shaft Seal: The shaft seal prevents hydraulic fluid from leaking along the drive shaft.
It is typically a combination of seals and gaskets that create a barrier between the internal and external environments, maintaining the system's integrity.
Control Mechanism: The A4VG series pumps often feature various control mechanisms to adjust the pump's displacement and flow rate. These mechanisms can include servo controls, manual control levers, or electronic control systems, allowing for precise and efficient operation.
Mounting Flange: The mounting flange provides a secure connection between the pump and the machine or system it is integrated into. It ensures proper alignment and stability during operation, minimizing vibrations and potential damage.
