EBAD TiNi™ Pin Puller

Price on request

The EBAD TiNi™ Pin Puller is fast-acting and suitable for a variety of Aerospace applications. Pin retraction is achieved by coupling the recovery characteristics of Shape Memory Alloys with a patented trigger mechanism. Pin Puller pull force ranges from 5 to 1000 lbf with five standard sizes offered as COTS (Commercial Off the Shelf) items.

Flight Qualified – Since its outer space debut aboard the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft in November 1996, the TiNi™ Pinpuller has been qualified and used on numerous other space applications.

NEA (Non-Explosive Actuators) – As with all the EBAD TiNi™ products, the Pinpullers are non-pyrotechnic and field reset-able with a minimum qualified life of 100 cycles.

Field Reset-able and Reliable – The mechanism is reset by simply re-extending the output shaft or Pin which may be accessed from the front or rear of the Pinpuller.

Redundant Firing Circuit – As with all EBAD TiNi™ Actuators a redundant SMA circuit is incorporated. This provides complete electrical redundancy as well as mechanical redundancy for the critical trigger element.

Fast Acting – By directly passing current through the SMA element, the Pinpuller’s perform in millisecond time frame making them ideal for synchronized and simultaneous release of multiple tie-down payloads.

Auto Shut-Off Switches – Simple Auto Shut Off Switches are incorporated into each Pinpuller to protect the Trigger.  This makes them very “user friendly” and operable from a wide range of current and voltages.
