Innovative Modular SMA Actuator

Abstract:

Article Preview

A modular design for a shape memory actuator is proposed. The actuator is able to perform linear movements, while the modularity allows force and/or stroke improvements. Experimental results show how the behavior of the proposed implementation is sufficient for a wide class of problems and can be improved with proper developments.
