The use of shape memory alloys (SMA) is particularly beneficial in consumer electronics, because hardly any other industry is as innovation-driven as yours due to constant pressure to reduce costs and improve functions.

How to benefit from of SMA in consumer electronics

Apart from software innovations, many innovations in consumer electronics are hardware-based. However, there is an unbroken trend towards miniaturized modules. From the fine motoric of adjustment mechanisms to novel assembly techniques for smartphones: these are areas in which shape memory alloys play to their strengths. The advantages of shape memory alloys come into their own with ever smaller hardware components and motoric tasks – which is why you really should consider using SMA in your application.

Particularly in consumer electronics, ever smaller solutions need to go hand in hand with falling costs and functional integration. These rather contradicting aspects can easily be brought in line with shape memory alloys. Newcomers to the field are usually amazed what forces the smallest of elements made of shape memory alloys can apply. When using shape memory alloys for switching operations, you will benefit from low energy consumption as well as minimal installation space.

We will let you concentrate on the integration into your hardware by also developing the perfect control device for you. But not only in the realm of switching operations: In consumer electronics, you can also profit from one-time applications with shape memory alloys where the change in shape only takes place once. This is often required in joining technology. Whether you are using plug-in or adhesive connections: In assembly technology you will not only

benefit from process improvements with shape memory alloys. Think of the many cases where, in theory, undetachable connections have to be designed to be detachable again. This is where shape memory alloys offer many new possibilities that you can use to your advantage. Do contact us with your queries:

Miniaturised switching processes and optimised assembly technology only represent two examples of applying shape memory alloys in consumer electronics. Many applications find their origin in medical technology. Due to our comprehensive understanding of SMA, with the possibility of benefiting from the full scope of our service portfolio, at Ingpuls we are able to provide you with transfer from medical tech – at prices you only know from mass production.This way, you will not only withstand the pressure of low costs from the competitors of your industry: You will be able to offer innovative solutions, ensure functional integration and simultaneously reduce complexity.In your field of activity within consumer electronics, how high do reckon your potential for solutions based on shape memory alloys? In consumer electronics you often need to reconcile targets which at first glance appear contradictory. This conflict can be solved with shape memory alloys. Are you looking for miniature adjusting units, thermally controlled locking/unlocking devices or even thin-film actuators? As diverse as the requirements of our customers may be – such diversely can SMA be used in consumer electronics, exactly tailored to your needs and working spot on to the requirements of your application.As a wire, as a sheet metal, as a functional coating; actively controlled or passively reacting; as a component or as a complete system; as a concept or as a volume-manufactured product?
