More and more companies in the household appliance and white goods sectors have started to appreciate the advantages of shape memory alloys (SMA). Which component or system you are working on? We will be happy to show you how you can benefit from the use of shape memory alloys for your specific requirements.

This is how shape memory alloys help you in household appliances

You can maintain and extend your own innovative edge and that of your customers with system solutions based on shape memory alloys. Because wherever you have so far installed small switches, adjustment units or conventional locking mechanisms in household appliances, shape memory alloys will reduce installation space, complexity and costs.Especially in household appliance technology, OEMs are looking for ready-made and innovative solutions. And that’s exactly where shape memory alloys comes into play.

An interesting area of application for SMA in household appliance technology is actuating mechanisms. Classically, temperature-induced actuating units, for example, consist of wax expansion materials with large counter springs. Their installation space, weight and costs can be significantly reduced by using shape memory alloys. You will also benefit from a faster response time, a longer service life and improved process reliability.

Or do you use servo motors for adjusting, locking and switching? It has been shown that small electric motors are often used in a suboptimal way in household appliance technology due to their characteristics: Power is transmitted through plastic gears or via levers, and your solutions are equipped with complex electrical controls. These do not necessarily increase comfort, but they do result in an

 increased susceptibility to errors. Here shape memory alloys reduce over-engineering: Your actuator does exactly the job it is supposed to do: in a reliable, silent, energy-saving, cost-effective way, with a high cycle count. Let’s talk – call us today:
