New Kyntrol High Force Density Electro-Hydraulic NexEra Actuators Offer Machine Designers Opportunities to Save Space

Kyntrol's new NexEra Actuators incorporate a combination of our innovative, patented electric motor driven pump and valve circuitry, modular manifold and cylinder, and optional integrated electronics to offer a wide range of actuator sizes to best fit your application.

Cleveland, Ohio January 23, 2014

Kyntrol, a leader in actuators and premium seat actuation control systems, has launched two new product lines of industrial actuators and actuation systems, called The NexEra.

The NexEra product line consists of two series of products, the NexAct and the NexSmart. Both products provide the unique ability to move large loads in a very small space envelope in contrast with comparable electro-mechanical and pneumatic actuators. This is possible through the incorporation of Electro-Hydraulic actuation technology in a self-contained system that does not require external hydraulic connections.

A key technology inside the NexEra product is an ultra-efficient, miniature hydraulic pump driven by either a servo motor or other motor technology depending on the level of precision control required by the application.

According to Lori Feldman, the company's Director of Sales and Marketing, "NexEra actuators and actuation systems offer an excellent alternative to most existing electro-mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic actuators."

NexEra actuators are easily installed as drop-in replacements on existing applications, or can be uniquely configured for OEM requirements to provide a distinctive competitive advantage for their end product.

The NexAct series is a cost effective solution that eliminates the need for a compressed air supply or hydraulic hoses, requiring only a simple power connection and external control signals.

Typical applications include:

*Valve Positioning
*Military Vehicles
*Process and HVAC Control
*Industrial Automation
*Medical Equipment / Patient Lifts
*Material Handling
*Autonomous Vehicles
*Food processing
*Mobile Equipment

The NexSmart series builds on the NexAct by incorporating Kyntrol's patented C-bus technology, "smart" servo control electronics and built-in software for a complete solution.

NexEra actuators merge the advantages of Hydraulic and Electro-Mechanical actuator technologies - high force in a small space, coupled with cost-effective precision control. All NexEra products are energy efficient, quiet and clean.

Kyntrol offers NexEra actuators with customized mechanical designs and in multi-axis configurations where coordinated motion of multiple actuators is required.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
