French innovator Cedrat Technologies launches MICA, its new range of linear actuators

Adeline Perrault - 30-nov.-2016 12:34:38

      CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES is unveiling its linear Moving Iron Controllable Actuator (MICA) product line onto the market, with associated drive electronics, in response to requirements in the industrial sector for highly reliable, long-life solutions.   The MICA linear actuators have been specifically developed for extremely long lifetime use, designed for zero maintenance over several years of continuous operation. This level of performance is achieved thanks to fixed coil and magnet designs, without electric flying leads and an efficient contact-free flexure bearing design. The 1KVA CSA96 power amplifier has been developed alongside the MICA product range. It features reactive power recovery, achieving more than 90% energy efficiency and it is able to drive both single and multiple MICA configurations. The moving iron actuator designs created by CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES are the highest performing in the sector compared to other classical magnetic actuators. The MICA actuator range is designed for high controllability, with higher force levels within more compact volumes and greater electrical efficiency. Their high efficiency results in heat dissipation through the very low Joule effect, together with easy and direct cooling on dedicated interfaces. The MICA actuators’ extremely long lifetime is a remarkable performance achievement, which is the result of CEDRAT TECHNLOGIES’ knowhow and experience in flexure bearing designs, built up over years of working with mechanisms as well as developing long-lifetime products in the aerospace and defence sectors. The moving mechanism assembly of the MICA range, with no sliding contact or friction losses, is able to accomplish almost perpetual movement on the flexure bearings, close to resonance, providing clients with very high powered, very low energy consuming and very low heat dissipating actuators. Significant efforts have been made on the actuator casing, to achieve an efficient fixed coil heat sinking design onto an aluminium structure, able to dissipate the coil’s Joule effect heat load by conduction towards the mechanical interfaces, cooled by either natural convection using blades, or by forced convection using air, or refrigerant cooling loop interfaces. This design offers the possibility of using the maximum force of the actuator and the maximum electrical power over very long periods of time, which cannot be achieved by commercial moving coil actuators currently on the market which have low cooling capabilities. The MICA design incorporates high thermal cooling, is lubricant-free, with no limited life ball bearings or plain bushing guiding devices. These features make it compatible with low maintenance devices and long lifetime performance requirements used in harsh environments such as warm and dusty conditions in isolated places without natural convection. Therefore, the MICA range is fully adapted for continuous operation with a high level of integrated functionality in production machines, machining processes requiring vibration assistance, or precision control such as active chatter suppression. Equally, the range is suitable for internal thermal fluid machines such as pumps, compressors, valves, linear alternators, or as standalone devices for vibration cancellation and energy recovery in transportation applications. About CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES: CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES SA is a high tech SME, part of ACTIVE STRUCTURE FINANCE, with 40 employees. The firm is based in the French Innovation Valley, close to Grenoble, and is supported by BPI France. CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES is specialised in the innovation of smart actuators, smart sensors, mechatronic systems, detection systems and technological training courses.

A quarter of the French delegation are exhibiting at METS 2016 for the first time

Adeline Perrault - 10-nov.-2016 12:20:08

Eighty-six French companies, representatives from across the industry, are exhibiting from 15th - 17th November 2016 at METS, the world’s largest marine equipment trade show in Amsterdam. The ever-growing number of exhibitors in the collective Pavilion organised by Business France – the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy – is proof of the vitality and quality of French expertise, which is at the cutting edge of technology. A quarter of the companies are first-time exhibitors. The French delegation includes 23 new exhibitors specialising in yachting solutions such as accessories, on-board safety, comfort and navigation optimisation. Boat building materials, equipment and services are of course still strongly represented at the show. France is the world leader in sailing boats and the multi-hull sector and is the world’s fourth largest motorboat manufacturer. It is also one of the main European markets for sea and river charter boats. The industry boasts 5,319 French companies, directly employing 40,166 people. Across the Channel, the industry’s total turnover amounts to €4.41 billion, while that of the boats sector totals at €831.70 million. The French yachting sector exports an impressive 76.8% of its goods and services. According to Anny Hoffman, organiser of the Pavilion at Business France, “ France has a higher standing than ever in the global yachting industry. French companies are increasingly dynamic abroad. The French yachting industry, driven by innovation, is seeing new companies emerging on the market. These are partly in response to the requirements of a certain group of yachtsmen and yachtswomen looking to experience different approaches to consumer trends. Innovation is ever-present in the industry, which has successfully modernised, whilst also maintaining the expertise that characterises French offerings .” With the support of the French Nautical Industries Federation (Fédération des industries nautiques –FIN), the French companies grouped together by Business France are exhibiting in an area measuring 1,200 m2, from 15th to 17th November 2016 in Halls 1 and 5, CMP (Construction Material Pavilion) and MYP (Marina Yard Pavilion) at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Center. Their R&D expertise attracts distributors, buyers and technical directors from shipyards worldwide. Many of them regularly receive awards for their innovations.

Adeline Perrault - 08-nov.-2016 13:36:50

    In a global market worth almost €200 billion (around £173 billion) a year, the medical devices and in vitro diagnostics sector is particularly innovative in France. Across the Channel, the sector is comprised of over a thousand companies, employing almost 65,000 people with expertise encompassing medicine, mechanics, material physics and digital technologies. The French market is estimated to be worth €15 billion (around £13 billion) with around 700 new patent applications filed every year, considerably boosting the sector’s value. Despite being largely made up of SMEs along with some microbusinesses and a few large groups, almost 74% of these organisations have R&D and/or production departments. The healthcare industry is navigating profound changes and, in response, is using innovation as a growth driver. R&D generates brand new solutions that deliver performance and security for both patients and doctors alike. Medical robotics is making technical medical interventions easier. French companies are at the leading edge of all of these technologies, helping to achieve what was previously believed to be impossible. Six French companies, particularly at the cutting edge of medical technology, will be in the spotlight in the Innovation zone at Medica 2016 in Hall 17 (17A40A 0 17A40E and 17C24F): AXILUM ROBOTICS   will be presenting the world’s first and only robot designed for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Its non-invasive neurostimulation technique offers therapeutic applications for psychiatric and neurological conditions, severe depression, chronic neuropathic pain and post-stroke conditions which are resistant to drug therapies. TMS could change the lives of millions of people living with chronic pain. It can considerably lessen drug-resistant symptoms by acting on affected parts of the brain. These robotic solutions, marketed since 2014, are sold or leased with maintenance contracts. MDOLORIS MEDICAL SYSTEM (17C24F) is the first global player able to provide hospital practitioners with non-invasive systems to continuously monitor pain. Of the three components of anaesthesia, analgesia is the only one not to have previously been measured objectively. For the very first time, this monitoring solution allows clinicians to objectively measure the pain felt by patients, enabling them to administer personalised quantities of painkiller to both conscious and unconscious patients. MIRAVAS  is exhibiting VBOX®, the first medical device to treat varicose veins with water vapour, for use in the operating room. Similar to other endothermic techniques (lasers, radiofrequencies, water vapour), its mechanism of action, that is emission of heat into the vein, causes collagen fibres in the vein wall that are obstructing the vein to retract. VBOX® delivers its steam treatment by sufficiently heating the body of sterile water contained in its handpiece so that it turns into steam. This heating process also raises the pressure in the handpiece up to saturation vapour pressure, allowing water vapour to be injected into the vein through a catheter or needle. Venous diseases affect millions of people, half of whom report having varicose veins. In terms of public health, the human and economic stakes are therefore considerable. Various European health insurance systems encourage the adoption of new minimally invasive techniques and the development of outpatient surgery to maximise patient comfort while staying on top of healthcare expenditure. VBOX® is a competitively priced and medically congruent device that makes it possible to treat the full spectrum of venous diseases in the doctor’s office. Its CE certification ensures it is available to angiologists and vascular surgeons in Europe.   PHYSIO-ASSIST   specialises in medical devices aimed at patients with obstructive respiratory illnesses. Its Simeox® range offers healthcare professionals access to breakthrough technology in bronchial decongestion and meets the primary needs of patients with cystic fibrosis or chronic bronchitis. Its thixotropic properties thin mucus and create turbulence by stimulating the tracheo-bronchial air at a distinctive frequency, resulting in bronchial drainage. Its performance, which has been proven in a clinical tolerance trial, improves the medical service delivered. It enables patients to carry out effective bronchial clearance independently and less painfully whilst also considerably reducing treatment costs. The Simeox® medical device and its consumables are now CE-labelled so that they can be marketed to physiotherapists via distributors for European markets, as well as countries with EEA trading agreements in place. It comes with a connected touchscreen interface and a travel pouch with space for storing medical consumables and the remote control.   ROBOSOFT SERVICES ROBOTS   will be presenting Kompaï, the connected assistant for caregivers that helps frail people live independently at home or in institutions. This robot improves people’s physical independence, helps them feel safe, especially in the event of a fall, monitors health to improve prevention, provides cognitive stimulus and facilitates day-to-day life by supporting social contact, allowing users to send emails by voice command. It also offers data processing capabilities.   THERAPIXEL   is revolutionising surgery through touchless visual recognition with Fluid, a medical image navigation system designed for the operating room. Operated entirely by gesture-based commands, it offers efficient access to patients’ radiological files in sterile conditions. No need to touch anything! The operating room diary is used to preload examinations in advance. Patient information is loaded by selection from the daily operating list. Fluid is compatible with all PACS on the market and gives access to all patient images, both pre and intraoperative, regardless of how they were generated.   Along with these 6 innovators, a total of 218 French companies will be exhibiting at the group pavilion run by Business France – the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy – at Medica, the global healthcare exhibition, on 14th-17th November 2016 in Düsseldorf.   · Hall 3: diagnostic and laboratory Equipment · Halls 4 and 5: physiotherapy and orthopedics · Hall 7a: consumer goods and textiles · Hall 15: new information and communications technologies · Halls 16 and 17: electro-medicine and operating room equipment · Hall 8b (Compamed): subcontracting for medical manufacturing (micro-technology, plastics technology, etc.)   With eight partners on-site at the France Pavilion – ALSACE BIOVALLEY - BCI - LILLE EURASANTE – CCI FRANCHE COMTE – CCI LIMOGES - MADEELI – I-CARE – MEDICEN - TECHNOPOLE TBS – SYNERGIA (Caen La Mer) and SUD DE FRANCE, come and meet the French exhibitors representing this growing industry.
