Abstract Fluid (water) flow translation motion conveyor (transporter) is being reviewed. In this device the actuator blades move in the plane axis parallel cycloidal motion, but the fluid flows away perpendicular to the rotation axis in translation direction. For this purpose the blade two component movement is synthesized by kinematics of the gear box: the first rotation takes place around the central axis of each blade, while the other rotation moves around this centre around the central axis of the transporter. The movement is designed in such a way that the central axis rotates twice as fast as the blades around its axles. The kinematics and dynamics of the transporter movement are analyzed, taking into account the characteristics of the drive motor and the blade interaction forces with fluid. The results of the analysis are shown in the graphs obtained by computer modelling. The possibility of creating a multi-element conveyor is being reviewed on the basis of one rotational element. In this case, it is possible to increase the efficiency of the system in such a way that the individual small conveyors in pairs operate in counter phase (rotates opposite). For transporter experimental investigations a special system is made inside the water tank. The system includes a rotating beam with a possibility to stick the devise in the end of this beam. Measurement sensors and the engine power system cable are connected to the control system via sliding contacts. A direct current electric motor is created in the conveyor drive. It allows to change the blade drive rotation number of a wide range. The design used in the work may also be used for other purposes, for example, for generation of energy from fluid flow. In this case, like before, all formulas can be used as calculation in relative interaction.
