The Kinitics Linear Actuator (KLA) is a shape memory-alloy based actuator that uses Bundled Wire technology to deliver high force and actuation speed in a small package. The Kinitics Linear Actuator can be easily configured to supply a pushing or pulling force. Due to the inherent lack of moving parts the actuator requires very little maintenance and produces very little noise. Position control is possible through the addition of a linear sensor while force control is possible through use of a strain gauge.

Potential Applications

See the KLA05 Linear Actuator in action as it is run through a sequence of three lifts on the Kinitics Test & Development Stand that showcase various features.

Product Selection Chart: This chart shows the relationship between rated force and travel for the KLA05 Kinitics Linear Actuator. Actuator travel, or stroke, depends on the travel modifier incorporated into the actuator, which in turn impacts the allowable operating force. For example, if you require an actuator with 5mm of travel and 300 N of force, you would use the above chart to select the a “KLA05-4O” actuator, indicating a 4mm nominal stroke and the over-travel modifier. These two options would then be used in the configurator below to generate the actuator part number. See the KLA05 data sheet for more details.
