Nitinol Actuators by Miga Technologies LLC

Flexinol Actuator Wire

Flexinol is a brand of Nickel-Titanium, or Nitinol actuator wire made by Dynalloy, Inc. in Irvine, California. They manufacture and stock multiple sizes of actuator wire from 0.0001″ to 0.020″ diameter. They offer multiple transition temperatures of 70C, 90C and a NiTiPd alloy that transitions at 170C.

Dynalloy’s wire is of high quality and can last for millions of cycles if it is used properly. Using it properly can be very tricky.

Nitinol Pneumatic Cylinder Replacement

This long stroke, high speed, prototype SMA actuator was designed for Sony to remove DVD's that did not pass quality control from an assembly line. Mineral oil is used in the body of this actuator to enhance cooling of the Nitinol. This actuator features 8" of 0.010"...

Nitinol Actuator Over-Stress Protection

Nitinol Actuator Over-Stress Protection

Nitinol actuators are very easily damaged if the stress exceeds roughly 40 ksi or if the temperature exceeds 150 degrees C. This is a demonstration of mechanical over-stress protection in which flexures deflect very short distances when an engineered or pre-determined...
