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
