naXture unlocks unprecedented capabilities for electrified high-force actuation
naXture revolutionises the world of actuation
The inspiration for our actuators comes from nature: the characteristics of human muscles. This is the basis for a completely disruptive technology with which we are setting a new standard in the field of electrified actuation – with a performance profile that can be adapted to any application.
For the first time, naXture allows you to combine maximum efficiency with the capabilities that matter to you in a scalable arrangement. A pioneering actuator, ready for the challenges of Industry 4.0 and at the same time robust enough to withstand even the most demanding environments. And all this in a format that fits in the palm of your hand.
naXture building blocks
naXture always offers exactly the skills you need
Are you looking for high-performance actuators for high force or speed requirements in low mechanical power ranges?
Then you will find everything you need in our naXture platform. The modular design allows for scalable functions, which are freely configurable on the basis of standard components.
A selection of the configurable naXture functions includes:
- Stroke, force and speed
- Safety behaviour in case of power loss
- Impedance characteristics
- Actuator geometry and integration
For which force-speed profile should your actuator be optimised? Our sample selection tool uses this design criterion to give you an initial insight into which samples, based on the naXture standard components, are available for you at short notice.
Modules and Performance
naXture stands for new possibilities in customised actuators
The latest generation of nature-inspired actuators: naXture
Robust and compact
naXture actuators are particularly robust. They stand out thanks to their high force density and their long service life in particularly demanding industrial environments. Even with heavy dirt contamination, high accelerations or extreme temperature ranges, naXture copes perfectly.
Plug & Play
Each naXture actuator consists of standardised functional modules that we configure specifically for you. They can be quickly integrated into your existing manufacturing processes or implemented as a stand-alone system solution – for minimal integration and operating costs and a fast time to market for your solution.
Efficient and sustainable
naXture combines high force density with positioning accuracy and ultra-dynamic movement with up to 75 percent less energy consumption. With our in-house development and manufacturing and our strong regional supplier base, we offer a reliable, scalable and sustainable supply chain.
- Use the highest force FApp that will occur in your drive application under normal circumstances.
- Give this force an addition of 60-65% to receive a force Fmax allowing sufficient dynamics.
- Within the configurator, depending on the load profile, select an actuator whose FPmax is close to FApp, or refer to the previously calculated force Fmax.
- The configurator will now propose some actuators.
If you cannot find any suitable suggestions, please contact us directly to discuss your specific requirements. Follow this link to enter your key data on the form provided.
- Download the technical information sheet and check your force-velocity requirements with the actuator’s characteristics.
- To check the velocity characteristic of the selected actuator, you can either use vPmax or vmax.
Do not be confused if you do not have a double match. The optimization of the actuating speeds can be done later.
Of course, we will be pleased to help you with the interpretation of the values and any necessary adjustments to your application!
