Company profile

The Centre for Applied Shape Memory Technology (ZAF) focuses the industry-oriented development of products based on shape memory alloys.
These smart materials have the capacity due to temperature change to change their shape. They can generate high actuating forces which are used in thermal or electric actuators. This results in weight savings of up to 90% (compared with electromagnets). Super-elastic elements, however, allow a 40-fold higher deformations compared to spring steels. The ZAF leads this technology in terms of materials, mechanics, electronics and software.
