Goodfellow (Coraopolis, PA) and the German technology company Acquandas GmbH have partnered to offer micro-patterned, 2D and 2.5D integrated multi-function miniaturized components and coatings. Materials currently available include nitinol (NiTi) and other superelastic or shape memory alloys, bioresorbable alloys, magnetic materials, as well as electrical alloys and insulators. In defense, aerospace, automotive, telecommunications, test equipment and manufacturing automation the technology finds application in shape memory alloy-based electrical actuators for robotic applications, and for the latest microelectromechanical (MEMS) technology to manufacture miniaturized electronic relays, position-sensing linear actuators, micro relays, micro valves and micro pumps.
