More and more companies from the field of household appliances and white goods have been starting to value the advantages of shape memory alloys (SMA). What is the component or system you are working on? For your special requirement, we are happy to show you how you can benefit from the use of SMA.

This is how SMA help you in household appliances

In conventional household devices, solutions based on SMA can play a great part helping you to maintain and grow your own competitive edge and that of your customer. Because now you can save space, complexity and costs with SMA wherever you have installed small switches, adjusting units or locking mechanisms.

Especially in the area of household appliances, where possible OEMs are looking for ready-to-use systems, SMA will help you out: Whether you are a purchaser or developer of innovative solutions.

In household appliance technology, actuation mechanisms constitute an interesting area of application for SMA. Classic actuation units, mostly induced by temperature, usually consist of wax expansion materials with large bias springs. Their space, weight and costs can be reduced significantly by using SMA. In this case, using SMA you will additionally benefit from a faster response time, a longer service life, less occupied space and an improved process reliability.

Or are you using servo motors for adjusting, locking and switching? It has been found that in many cases, small electric motors in home appliances are currently not being used ideally. This is by and large due to their properties: Force transmission takes place by plastic gears or via levers and your solutions are often equipped with complex electrical controls. This does not necessarily increase convenience but results in an increasing susceptibility to errors and failure.

This is where SMA reduces over-engineering: With SMA, your actuation element performs exactly the work you want: Reliably, noiselessly, energy efficient, cost-effectively, and for tens of thousands of cycles – or even more. To find out more, get in touch with us today.

SMA solutions in household appliances increase the satisfaction of your customers…

… because SMA allow the actuation movements of your solutions to take place silently – at the same time being highly reliable. Is this your area and does this sound interesting for you? Then we are happy to help you by showing you your potential and possibilities through the use of SMA. We will design your solution precisely for your required operating points. Innovation in household appliance technology has never been this simple.

Your solution in household appliances requires precise, reliable and cost-effective actuation mechanisms. The better you understand the overall system the more we can support you; because SMA often save you additional complexity. What are the pains you are dealing with?
