Customized Micro Valves

Suitable for your application with innovative shape memory actuator technology

Customized Micro Valves


We are convinced that film-based SMA actuator technology can play out clear technological advantages in numerous applications. These include the field of 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 needs.

What all our miniature valves have in common is that the SMA actuator used and the continuously optimized layer structure allow great flexibility for customer-specific requirements. This means that our miniature valves can be adapted extremely quickly to different pressure and flow ranges, and different materials (for biocompatibility, for example) can be taken into account in the design. This modularity allows the use of our miniature valves in numerous application areas from bioanalytics (e.g. media-separated, flushable or biocompatible) to production automation (e.g. high flow rate or fast closing behavior).

USE CASES AND APPLICATIONS

The flexible design of our fluidics components and their easy adaptability and integrability enable a wide range of applications.
Let us discuss applications in your industry.

Safe human-machine collaboration in mass production
Valve Technology

With its pressure sensitive skin for robots and End-of-Arm-Tooling (EOAT) AIRSKIN®, Blue Danube Robotics offers an innovative solution for improved human-machine-collaboration in mass production. memetis supports with its ultra-compact valve technology.

INITIAL SITUATION

Nowadays robots are an indispensable part of mass production. However, many of the robots used there are secured in cages to protect "human colleagues" - robot systems that guarantee the safety of workers are usually expensive and have not yet widely been used. With the pressure-sensitive AIRSKIN® system, cages and other safety systems are a thing of the past. Existing robots can be retrofitted with the system.

CHALLENGE

The AIRSKIN® system consists of a thin skin filled with air, which can detect the slightest pressure changes (e.g. in the event of a collision) and bring the robot to a standstill. To keep the pressure in the system constant, Blue Danube Robotics requires an ultra-compact, especially flat miniature valve, which places the highest demands on tightness as well as flow. Due to these unusual requirements, an application-specific valve solution is required.

SOLUTION

memetis develops a micro valve which meets the requirements of Blue Danube Robotics: High flow and density in the low pressure range. And all this with the smallest dimensions!


Customer comment / Blue Danube Robotics GmbH

"For our product AIRSKIN we need electrically controllable micro valves in the lowest pressure range for the medium air. In addition, we require leakage values that are not common in the industry. After a long unsuccessful search for suitable products, we found memetis to be a company that could offer us a tailor-made solution. By combining problem-solving affinity with series production and very close customer cooperation, memetis turned out to be the proverbial needle in the haystack for complex industrial fluid technology solutions. The memetis valve not only makes our product better and more robust, but also safer."

Increase functionality with valve manifolds

Your fluidic circuit diagram implemented with a valve manifold

We implement your fluid logic in a valve manifold that maximizes functionality in your system.

Micro Valve Manifolds

Whether two, four or 18 valves, we will be happy to develop a valve manifold for your fluidics system. With their width of only 5 mm, the valves can be tightly packed and thus find space even in limited installation space. The 3D-printed manifolds can be implemented according to your requirements and delivered quickly. So that you can immediately test the valves in your system.
