The item in question is described as a rack and pinion rotary actuator, type DRQD, product number DRQD 175804.

The motor can be adjusted to control the amount of rotation . Descriptive literature and a sample were submitted.

The applicable subheading for the rotary actuator will be 8412.39.0080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other pneumatic power engines and motor. The rate of duty is free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Kenneth T. Brock at 646-733-3009.
