An inclined disc revolving on an axle and giving reciprocating motion to a part in contact with it.
- ‘Air bubbles under extreme pressures, like those found at the swash plate and pistons of a piston pump, explode.’
- ‘From the pilot's position, you can look up and aft and see the swash plate.’
- ‘The IVT uses a swash plate design that imparts reciprocating motion via the inclination of a faceplate on a shaft relative to the axis of rotation.’
- ‘Multi-piston swash plate type compressor with arrangement for internal sealing and for uniform distribution of refrigerant to cylinder bores’
