Mechanically Actuated Valves

Product Information

Kuhnke manually and mechanically actuated valves are designed for restricted spaces in applications like switch panels or control desks.Even if having a very compact shape Kuhnke manually and mechanically actuated valves can realize high flow rates. Furthermore Kuhnke manually and mechanically actuated valves are flexible in use for miscellaneous tasks due to various actuation options like plunger, push botton, lever, ball, roller lever or one way roller lever and control panel actuators.

Kuhnke mechanically valves series 46 and 74 have the advantage of closed center function and can be used with nominal pressure of up to 12 bar.

The pilot controlled miniature mechanically actuated valve series 72 and the directly controlled poppet valve series 42 can be used up to 8 bar nominal pressure.

The miniature mechanically actuated valve series 72 was developed as extremely small pneumatic component, realizing high performance at a common micro switch size.


  • Low space requirement (switch panel mounting)
  • High flow rates
  • Without overlap (types 46 and 74)
  • Diverse uses, e.g. buttons, catches, toggles, etc.


  • Appliances
  • Dental technology
  • Materials handling and process technology
  • Medical engineering
