Product description

Magnetic Shape Memory (MSM) alloys are ferromagnetic materials that produce motion and force under moderate magnetic fields. They are typically single crystalline alloys of Nickel, Manganese and Gallium, and are able to produce 6% strain under up to 2 N/mm² external load. Frequencies up to the low kilohertz range can be achieved. ETO MAGNETIC has developed this material as well as actuator prototypes in recent years to a new level of maturity. ETO's new MAGNETOSHAPE® technology is now ready to conquer applications.
The MAGNETOSHAPE® ultrafast switching valve offers a new and innovative actuattion principle compared to conventional electromagnetic solutions with outstanding switching time and a compact design, facilitating a very low grid spacing in valve blocks. Especially for optical sorting of materials such as seeds, grains, granulates, and minerals by pneumatic ejection of deficient objects, the MAGNETOSHAPE® valve is ideally suited. Switching times clearly below 1 ms and valve block arrangements with nozzle grid spacing below 2 mm can be achieved with this valve concept. We are glad to discuss your specific applications and to adapt the concept to your requirements.
