Non-pyro Mechanisms

For decades, pyrotechnic mechanisms have been used in the defense and aerospace industries to provide fast acting (less than 1ms) and simultaneous events over a wide operating temperature and preload capability range. As these markets continue to develop and mature, the technology base has broadened to support non-energetic solutions, particularly for applications that require low shock or reusability. EBAD has responded by providing our customers with additional technology choices that not only reduce costs, but assure reliability (pyros cannot be re-tested), particularly for sensitive equipment. Ensign-Bickford has invested in innovative and complimentary technologies to provide our customers with a diverse portfolio of products for any mission. From our NEA® (refurbishable) to our TiNi™ (field resettable) mechanism product lines, EBAD can provide a range of non-energetic solutions to support your mission needs.
