Woodward Actuators for Diesel and Gas Engines

    Forming the foundation of full electronic control 

    Actuators for Diesel and Gas Engines image

    In addition to completely integrated control systems, Woodward provides individual control component technologies that integrate easily with other controls to provide total engine equipment control that meets user requirements for efficiency, emissions, performance, and reliability. Our linear, rotary, hydro-mechanical, and gear motor actuators are put to work in systems that include turbocharger bypass and recirculation valves, EGR valves, fuel rack control, mass flow metering valves, throttle valves, and wastegate valves. The variety of net force, torque, and bore sizes (on our integrated throttle body actuators) allow usage on engines ranging in size from 1 L to over 40 MW.

    Benefits of Woodward Actuation Technologies

    • Better engine responsiveness and performance through tighter speed control
    • Lower emissions through improved air/fuel ratio control
    • Better system operation through fully integrated functionality and proven reliability
