Kinitics Automation Limited

Kinitics Automation is based in Richmond, BC with roots in the automotive and power-generation industries.
 
A leading company in the development of motion control products using shape memory alloy (SMA) materials, Kinitics manufactures its own line of Linear Actuators and Piston Pumps based on the company’s Bundled Wire technology.
 
The first use case of SMA dates back to 2012 when, during the founders’ endeavours to develop a small and lightweight clutch actuator for motorcycles, it became clear that conventional fluid power technologies could not produce the needed results; thus the first Kinitics Piston Pump was born.
 
Notable achievements made in the pursuit of advancing SMA technology includes the development of Bundled Wire technology, application of high voltages, application as a power source and control device in hydraulic circuits, stable performance over millions of cycles, and high levels of repeatable precision and accuracy.

Kinitics Automation is a leading company in the development of motion control products using shape memory alloy materials.

"We are excited to work with NGIF

...and its upstream investors in pursuit of methane emission reductions. Access to the end-user has allowed us to sit down and listen to their needs, paving the way for us to address those needs with a purpose-built innovative solution. The opportunity to test and demonstrate our solution in industry relevant settings will help to accelerate the technology roll-out process while breaking down the commercial adoption barriers.”

In addition to its own products, Kinitics works closely with original equipment manufacturers to develop SMA actuators for their specific applications.
