Market introduction

Product description

Requirement-Specific Actuator Modules enable New Freedom with Minimum Installation Space and Minimum Weight. Active hybrid composites combine fiber-reinforced plastics and shape memory alloys and generate large changes in geometry even at low temperature changes. CompActive designs and manufactures active components and systems based on shape memory alloys (SMA). With our actuator principle, we enable adjustment functions that can be implemented with minimal installation space, minimum weight and with a gap-free and kink-free contour. As a result, the technology offers new opportunities for innovative applications in a cross-industry environment. CompActive provides all steps from idea to modules for series application from feasibility studies, setup of functional prototypes and detailed design to manufacturing of active modules. The EXIST research transfer project CompActive at the Institute of Composite Materials intend to develop this technology to market maturity.
