There are now new ways to create motion without motors or solenoids! Using:

Shape Memory Alloys

  Motors and solenoids use coils of conductive wire to generate magnetic fields. Usually creating continuous rotation, or in the case of a solenoid pulling a shaft back and forth. Shape Memory Alloys open up a new world of possibilities to create actuators and motions systems, using a solid state actuator.  


Simple Latchbox
The Flexinol® actuator wire provides a small yet strong alternative a motor or solenoid, in this simple and low cost latch. When activated electrically, the small diameter Flexinol® actuator wire contracts opening the latch and allowing the lid to open. This is only one demonstration of one of the many different latch possibilities! What can you dream up?
