The actuator uses proprietary Bundled Wire technology to deliver high force and actuation speed in a small package; it uses no motors, and requires only electrical power to operate. This allows users to upgrade and improve existing systems, while also enabling the automation and control of processes that were previously unfeasible using conventional equipment. Units are available with forces up to 650 N (146 lbf) and strokes up to 6.7 mm (0.264 inches), can be easily configured to supply a pushing or pulling force, and fit in a variety of applications. The unit requires minimal infrastructure to operate and has only one moving part and no backlash. Positional accuracy is ± 5 µm. Available accessories include rod-end attachments, a range of mounting brackets and an adjustable home position switch. Potential applications include gripping, pressing, punching, and positioning. The company’s KCA020 Controller allows the actuator to be used in anything from simple to elaborate of control strategies. It uses single-phase 120 VAC 60 Hz power and interfaces with standard control hardware using discrete I/O. A 4-20 ma input is provided for complex control using position and/or force feedback strategies.
