St. Louis, MO., March 21, 2016 – Nexmatix, a leader in the field of energy efficient pneumatic systems, has received a Phase IIB Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grant will be used to expand the Company’s current directional control valve line, develop a novel leak detection feature and prove the energy efficiency of a new valve for single actuation processes. The new innovations will contribute to the Nexmatix vision of making pneumatic systems more efficient.
“We are very pleased that the NSF has the confidence in our team and technology to award a Phase IIB grant,” said Victoria Gonzalez, CEO of Nexmatix. “This $500k NSF grant allows us to develop new products that will compliment our line of ISO directional control valves providing more options for customers to save electricity cost.”
Nexmatix launched its next generation pneumatics platform focusing on energy efficiency. The Company’s initial line of ISO directional control valves was tested with a select group of customers who have corporate commitments to energy reduction. The valves have been proven to reduce compressed air used in actuation an average of 30%.
