We support our customers from the target-oriented needs analysis, ideation and project planning to the development of tangible prototypes. This enables us to jointly lay the foundation for successful actuator technology in series production, which brings the greatest possible benefit to the end user. Our services here include project management for development and efficient feasibility testing thanks to rapid prototyping.
The cooperation between memetis and its customers is becoming increasingly interlinked. Essential success factors are our special know-how, the necessary equipment and our experience in project and process management. Our project managers understand both upstream and downstream process steps and can therefore assess the entire process flow with regard to efficient development and production. As part of the development process, we assume project management, project planning, visualization, as well as data and change management. In the area of manufacturing, we provide support with assembly instructions, implement joint production planning and are actively involved in starting series production.
Development work always marks the first step in our projects. In order to achieve the goal of high-performance microactuators, customer-specific requirements must be taken into account as early as the actuator design stage. The concepts developed in this phase are put through their paces with regard to their technological feasibility, subsequent production and economic effects. The result is an actuator concept, which brings great forces and an ultra-compact design into various fields of application. Essential results of this work include:
- Design studies and concepts
- Functional analyses
- Functional models and planning for further development
Our versatile rapid prototyping methods enable us to quickly and flexibly validate a wide variety of design variants. We are specialized to manufacture smallest components made of plastics and metal foils. For our projects in the field of SMA actuators, as well as for your customer-specific inquiries, we offer various manufacturing options:
- CNC milling of plastic parts up to a size of 210 x 160 x 15 mm3
- Laser cutting of plastics, wood/ paper and metal foils
- Laser welding of transparent polycarbonate e.g. for microfluidic structures
- 3D printing (SLA and FDM) with structure widths of less than 0.3 mm
