Kinitics Automation has announced the availability of the first product in the company’s line of high‐force, short‐throw linear actuators, the KLA05. The KLA05 Linear Actuator is a shape memory alloy‐based actuator that uses proprietary Bundled Wire technology to deliver high force and actuation speed in a small package. The product is the first commercially available linear actuator using shape memory alloy to provide precise linear motion without the use of motors, and requires only electrical power to operate it. This breakthrough product allows users to upgrade and improve existing systems, while also enabling the automation and control of processes that were previously unfeasible using conventional equipment.
The new Kinitics KLA05 linear actuator can be easily configured to supply a pushing or pulling force, and fits in a variety of A Kinitics Automation KLA05 linear actuator applications. Due to its use of shape memory alloy and Kinitics’ proprietary bundled wire technology, the KLA05 linear actuator offers a number of features and benefits that distinguish it from other types of actuators:
The KLA05 linear actuator is available with a variety of accessories, including rod‐end attachments, a range of mounting brackets and an adjustable home position switch.
