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. Its compact, dynamic and accurate products for mechatronics systems in challenging environments are recognised and appreciated worldwide by customers operating in varied fields such as aerospace, biomedical sciences, automated manufacturing, optronics and more.

This year, the jury was made up of representatives from major companies in the industry such as SNCF, RATP, Alstom, Eurotunnel, British Steel France Rail as well as specialised organisations such as the Railway Industry Association and I-Trans. They awarded prizes in three categories: -          Innovation -          International Development -          Customer / Supplier Relationships RUSTIN won the French Rail award for Innovation In the rail rolling stock industry, many years of experience is the key for a better and safer business.  The very highest degree of regulation for flame resistance, sound insulation, safety devices, for both local and regional transport as well as long distance travel to high-speed services with a worldwide reliability for our rubber sealing system is already a reality for RUSTIN. As a leading system supplier we have been active in designing and manufacturing rubber solutions in low-smoke fire-resistant compounds for and together with our customers for more than 80 years.  The very highest degree of technical precision is the focus of our product development work.  We provide customer-oriented solutions. RUSTIN’s rubber compounds for fire resistant seal are a new dimension into safety, with a full compliance to the EN 45 545-2. Our product & technology We are all guilty of getting frustrated when traversing the huge underground network that connects the oldest subway capital city like London, Paris, and transports millions of people each day! While frustration and stress are sometimes called for, here’s something that’ll make your journey through the underground easier. Introducing new modern signaling systems, delays due to signal, security and door failures will be reduced, making life for passengers more fluid with a reliable service. On the platform, the passenger will know immediately the status of the current operation of the door. Each door will provide its own status by an individual signal. Green – system is on and open, red flashing – the door security system is on and the door will close, white, the system is locked. Easy and modern signaling will improve the walk through the carriage, helping to ease the access and extra demand at peak time. More information at: on Rustin’s website FLEXELEC won the Customer-Supplier Relationship Award FLEXELEC is a 100 p. company located in France and UK, Germany, USA & Tunisia. Annual turnover is around €15m, more than 65% is achieved through exports to 50 countries. FLEXELEC is a part of the OMERIN group, world leader in conductor cables for extreme conditions.  “The Customer-Supplier relationship French Rail Award received by FLEXELEC during the last INNOTRANS 2016 in Berlin is a fantastic achievement for our small company. It shows we choose a coherent strategy face to the very specific challenge of our markets. Specific because our expertise is manufacturing and conceiving tailor-made heating cables and heating mats for many different uses, from switchers ice melting in Stockholm to the complete floor heating of the new STADLER high speed train, or even the toilet equipment’s temperature maintenance, so we have to be versatile and adapt to each project needs.

Catherine Ryall - 24-nov.-2016 12:31:04

Hauts-de-France to UK business: ‘Welcome home’ The Hauts-de-France region launches campaign to attract British investors and business leaders v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}.shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} Normal 0 21 false false false FR X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Tableau Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif";}   In Hauts-de-France, job creation is a priority, and the region’s many assets are a powerful draw for business. This explains the new ‘Welcome Home’ campaign to attract and assist British investors and business leaders who want to set up shop in Hauts-de-France. Behind the initiative are the Hauts-de-France Regional Council and its partners—Nord France Invest, CCI International, CRT Picardie Tourism, Nord France Convention Bureau and Lille’s Agency. ‘The British people said “no” to Brussels—but not to Hauts-de-France. We’re working together to create a win-win strategy that will boost trade, tourism and economic development. To British investors and business leaders, I say, “you’ve got a home with us.’ Xavier Bertrand, Hauts-de-France Regional Council Chairman Closest to the UK The Welcome Home campaign underscores the region’s commitment to continue working with British partners after Brexit, showcasing Hauts-de-France as the region closest to the UK—a perfect location for businesses that want access to the European market. And geography is only the beginning: like the UK, Hauts-de-France makes creating a pro-business environment a priority. The campaign highlights the region’s outstanding economy, infrastructure and quality of life. It also confirms that key players in the region are actively committed to crafting tailored solutions for their foreign partners and welcoming British investors and businesses that want to stay present in European markets. Hauts-de-France launches Welcome Home campaign on 4 th November Video: released on the Welcome Home website www.welcom-eu.com and via social media , the new video promotes Hauts-de-France as a place where British and other foreign entrepreneurs can grow their businesses while enjoying excellent quality of life. In the video, British businessman James Anderson presents the advantages of living in Hauts-de-France in a series of short vignettes that highlight the  region’s many assets: R&D and innovation clusters, easy access, simple procedures for setting up a business, a competitive workforce, excellent quality of life and great food.   New website : a dedicated website at www.welcom-eu.com   will allow British business to make direct  contact with regional partners who can help them set up shop in Hauts-de-France. The site will also include ‘how-to’ tips on getting started, organised by type of project: investment,business tourism, international partnerships and European programmes. A campaign featuring posters on the London underground system, banner ads on the websites of major British media outlets and information in brochures, on social media and other targeted vehicles will run in London from 4th November through 30th January. The aim: to make British investors aware of the advantages of doing business in Hauts-de-France and the support offered by the Regional Council and its partners.     4 th November – 2 nd December: place mats will appear in restaurants in The City, London’s financial centre.     7 th November – 5 th December: banner ads will run on the websites of targeted British media outlets (Independent.co.uk, Economist.com, Businesstraveller.com, Theguardian.com), redirecting users to a dedicated website.     21 st November – 4 th December: a poster campaign will run on the London underground in Baker Street, Bank, Bond Street, Canary Wharf, Covent Garden, Green Park, Holborn, Knightsbridge, Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Westminster stations.     1 st December : information on doing business in Hauts-de-France will appear in Metropolitan , Eurostar’s passenger magazine , and Business Life , the in-flight magazine for British Airways .     Social media channels will also provide practical tips for British investors and business leaders.   Ad to appear in Metropolitan and British Airways Business Life   The Welcome Home campaign grew out of a commitment made by the Regional Council last summer, when Hauts-de-France representatives met with British visitors in Calais to lay the groundwork for incoming UK-based businesses. The Regional Council has been closely involved at every stage—first producing the video, then creating a toll-free number staffed by English-speaking representatives to coincide with initial contacts, and finally using European aid and support from regional institutions to streamline formalities required for new ventures.     Shared commitment to enhance the appeal of Hauts-de-France The region offers incoming businesses a wide range of advantages:    The right location with the right infrastructure : located near Paris in the heart of Northern Europe, Hauts-de-France is within 180 miles (300 km) of five European capitals. Its robust transport infrastructure includes motorways, railway stations, high-speed trains, international airports and seaports       Favourable business environment : Hauts-de-France does not tax business premises      R&D clusters to serve the business community : key focus areas include e-commerce, mechanical engineering, agricultural resources and composites      A pool of 78 million consumers      Tailored assistance : Hauts-de-France and its partners offer support services designed specifically for each project. These include helping businesses secure financing, create networks, find the right premises and work with the region’s employment and training specialists      Well preserved quality of life : Hauts-de-France offers a wealth of events and activities throughout the year. Attractions include the prestigious Louvre-Lens museum, Pierre Mauroy stadium, the stunning Somme Bay nature preserve and a number of regional parks      Residents with a strong sense of hospitality and community   The Regional Council and its partners—Nord France Invest, CCI International, Lille’s Agency, CRT Picardie and the Nord France Convention Bureau—want to make British investors and business leaders aware of the region’s many strengths and to help them launch successful ventures in Hauts-de-France.
