Custom Actuators

ARQUIMEA designs and develops custom actuators under request, based on smart materials, for super-elastic applications and ready to work under extreme environmental conditions, according to our Clients’ specifications.

Our main heritage resides in low-shock, non-explosive, SMA triggered linear and rotary mechanisms for space applications, but our mechanisms have also been demanded by other sectors, such as automotive, industrial or medical.

 

MAIN PROJECTS:

  • Dust sensor cleaning for Mars. Smart embedded rotary actuator (Space)
  • Hinge rotary actuator for solar panels’ deployment (Space)
  • SMA technology for artificial muscle applications in Space (Space)
  • Petrol cap door opening actuator (Automotive)
  • Exhaust pipes with variable geometry (Automotive)
  • Retractile radiator cover (Automotive)
