New to Our Range:
A Magnetic Shape Memory Alloy that Converts Magnetic Field Energy into Kinetic Energy
Goodfellow is pleased to announce the addition of an innovative
magnetic shape memory alloy (nickel-manganese-gallium) to our range.

This material responds to magnetic fields, allowing for the conversion of
magnetic field energy into kinetic energy. Although it is similar in action to
piezo-based or magnetostrictive materials, this patented NiMnGa single
crystal produces much higher strain outputs (typically 10 to 100 times more)
and higher energy density (8 to 50 times higher). This novel alloy
represents a significant alternative to conventional actuators
, especially
for applications that require a large strain and light weight, such as in
aerospace, automotive and medical components.
