Our current product range

Wire rethought – so-called shape memory alloys (SMA) form the basis of our ae-smart products

  • ae-smart wire (blank, coated, knurled)
  • ae-smart components (crimped, contacted)
  • ae-smart springs
  • ae-smart individual – components specially adapted to your needs

Our offer to you

  • We develop shape memory semi-finished products and shape memory components precisely tailored to your requirements
  • We support the use of shape memory components in your product development through:
    – Feasibility studies
    – Innovation and integration consulting
    – Construction of prototypes
    – Testing and qualification of shape memory materials and components

A wide range of applications, e.g. in aviation, industry, automotive, medical technology, etc.

What is special about shape memory components?

  • Shape memory alloys (SMA) are exceptional materials that can perform a wide range of tasks.
  • SMA have two main effects: the mechanical effect (spring/damping elements) and the thermal effect (actuators/connectors).
  • After a deformation of 8% (steel approx. 0.2%), shape memory wires always return to their original shape.
  • Shape memory components have the greatest weight-specific working capacity of all known actuator principles.
  • Unique and novel designs can be realised through the use of shape memory components.

Shape memory alloys as problem solvers in your products, processes and services!
