which produces elements based on shape memory alloys. With use of latest production and characterisation methods we design SMA with qualities needed for innovative products. Afterwards we produce these materials and develop products with favored/desired functions. This results in high-tech products based on SMA, cast from one mold.
such as shape memory alloys (sma), will meet us wherever set movements and/or set forces are needed or requested. Wether in equipment for household, cars, heatings, in the Smartphone, in satellites and even as a functional implant in the human body.
allow the development of especially efficient products and systems using sma. By the skillfull use of these functional materials complex assembly groups again are more clearly arranged, smaller and lighter. It is an effective way to minimize costs and also to conserve valuable resources. This is what is of equal benefit to the world and (therefore) to humans.
The products of the future will be smaller, lighter, cheaper and more efficient.
Why? Because they can.
What is behind SMA?
Shape memory alloys are metallic materials with the ability to recover their original shape after an apparently plastic deformation. Thereby reversible expansions between 6-8% can be reached.More about technology from SMA and Nitinol...
Founded in 2009 as a spin-off to the Institute for Materials of the Ruhr University Bochum, Ingpuls is now the only SMA manufacturer in Germany with the entire vertical manufacturing range from raw materials to finished components.More about the history of Ingpuls...
THE IP EMS0.1 is the first commercially available control system for sma actuators. The system is used to control actuators with precise positioning. The positioning can be either discrete (on/off or multiple positions) or stepless including stopping points. In addition, the IP EMS0.1 enables real-time system diagnosis of the actuators as well as fatigue and ambient temperature compensation.
