SHAPE-MEMORY ELASTIC ELEMENTS
for industrial applications
“Flexibility is within our DNA” is not merely a catch phrase but a modus operandi that characterises us. Technosprings Italia S.r.l. designs, creates prototypes and produces smart devices and elastic elements, using shape-memory materials. Shape-memory materials are an innovative class of materials offering unique properties such as shape recovery by simple heating (Shape Memory Effect) or the capacity to withstand large strains with no yielding (Superelasticity). Starting from the knowledge of the functional properties of shape-memory materials, in recent years Technosprings gained a significant experience in cold working and end properties’ optimisation of its manufactured devices, offering solutions that can be embedded into its customers’ products.
Our productive environment has always offered high quality standards in large-scale production, when processing traditional materials. Such skill was integrated in the production processes of shape-memory items perfectly, guaranteeing reproducibility and reliability of functional properties. Elastic elements in shape-memory alloy are extensively used In many industries, particularly in the air conditioning, thermohydraulic and automotive sectors as actuators in flow direction regulators, in the fire prevention sector as safety components, and also in the biomedical sector in the manufacturing of fixation devices of bony portions after traumatic events.
