memetis develops foil-based miniature actuators made of shape memory alloys (SMA). SMA are metallic alloys that seem to "remember" a certain shape by electric heating that has been trained beforehand and then assume it independently. The alloy already disposes of these properties, so that no further mechanical components are required. memetis actuators thus enable high switching forces with better integration and higher flexibility compared to conventional solutions. memetis has the expertise to quickly adapt the developed actuators to customer requirements. Due to the extended range of applications, memetis actuators are used in a multitude of innovative industries and sectors.
