GOODFELLOW
New to Our Range: :
A Magnetic Shape Memory Alloy that Converts Magnetic Field Energy into Kinetic Energy
Goodfellow is pleased to announce the addition of an innovative magnetic
shape memory alloy (nickel-manganese-gallium) to our range
. This
material responds to magnetic fields, allowing for the conversion of magnetic
field energy into kinetic energy. Although it is similar in action to piezo-based
or magnetostrictive materials, this patented NiMnGa single crystal produces
much higher strain outputs (typically 10 to 100 times more) and higher energy
density (8 to 50 times higher). This novel alloy represents a significant alternative to conventional actuators, especially for applications that
require a large strain and light weight, such as in aerospace, automotive and
medical components.
