Actuation Technology - Challenges


Central Hydraulic


Larger package size

Continuous running pump;  inefficient

Costly infrastructure & inefficient compressor

Requires a brake to hold position

Expensive to accurately control

Difficult to control

Back driving the screw under load

Leaky connectors / hoses & fittings – infrastructure

Leaky connectors / hoses & fittings – infrastructure 

Susceptible to contaminants

Slow response

Bang-Bang operation

Gearing / metal-metal friction / screw inefficiencies

Difficult to coordinate multiple cylinders

Low Force Density


Costly installation

Dirty Air

Many pieces

Kyntronics EHA = High Force Density

More Force in Less Space

mechanical advantage

On-board Pressure Sensor Provides Force Feedbackmore force less space

Exponential force with small increases in cylinder size.

e.g. from 2.5” to 3.25” (30% inc) the force increases (69%)

Efficiency + a Force Advantage
