We are convinced that film-based SMA actuators can play out clear technological advantages in numerous applications. These include fluidics, in particular valve technology. The high flexibility in design adaptation as well as ultra-compact dimensions allow us to manufacture high-performance valves with greatly reduced installation space requirements - and always easily adapt them to customer-specific requirements.
In addition to valve technology, the application-specific development and manufacture of fluidic systems and platforms, especially for analytics (e.g. lab-on-chip), are particular strengths of memetis.
memetis bundles many years of research in the field of valve technology and therefore has a broad portfolio of variants and technologies at its disposal in order to be able to meet even challenging requirements. What all our valves have in common is that the SMA actuator used and the continuously optimized layer structure allow great flexibility for customer-specific requirements. Thus, our valves can be adapted extremely quickly to different pressure and flow ranges and different materials (e.g. for biocompatibility) can be taken into account in the design. This modularity allows our valves to be used in numerous applications ranging from bioanalytics (e.g. media-separated, flushable or biocompatible) to production automation (e.g. high flow rates or fast closing).
Among other things, we can develop and manufacture the following valve types at short notice according to your requirements
- 2/2-way valve (monostable) - Normally open (NO)
- 2/2-way valve (monostable) - Normally closed (NC)
- 2/2-way valve (bistable)
- 3/4-way valve (monostable) - Normally open/ closed (NO/NC)
- 2/2-way/ Multi-way control valve (continuous)
Numerous applications demand high portability of the devices while at the same time taking specific requirements into account. This applies in particular to analytics and diagnostics, where fluidic systems are worn directly on the patient or where analysis chips must be microscopable directly in the system.
We have made it our task to meet these requirements and always supply the appropriate fluidic system. Our competence in the field of microstructure technology enables us to use our own miniature components (e.g. valves) as well as the customer-specific implementation of fluidic logics in highly portable format. A high vertical range of manufacture also enables us to manufacture quickly in-house. Requests for electrical control can also be flexibly taken into account.
