• Ingpuls - Your partner for products based on SMA

    made in Bochum
  • Nitinol

    Material and development from one source
  • Shape Memory Alloys

    Highest product quality through 100% vertical integration

Ingpuls from Bochum develops and produces

smart materials based on SMA

"Today smart materials change the future of our products and the future of all humans."

Ingpuls is a materials company

which produces elements based on shape memory alloys. As your partner, we design shape memory alloys / Nitinol with the properties you need for your innovative products using state-of-the-art manufacturing and characterization methods. We then produce these materials and develop the products with the functions you require. This is how high-tech products are created, with the FGL component at the center - everything from a single mold.

Smart Materials,

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.

Special characteristics

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.

Next leap in your innovation...
...through shape memory technology

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.

IP EMS0.1 von Ingpuls

Demonstration of the temperature compensation

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.
