Aeronautics, Space, Defence
Nimesis Technology offers design and development in aeronautics and space. Applications in these sectors are multiples and the interest of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) has been confirmed by several industrials. Weight gain, reduction of the number components and high reliability ensure a significant price optimisation.
Shape memory coupling sleeves
A tubular sleeve is expanded and placed around two pipes extremities. Upon heating, the sleeve returns to its original shape and endure a perfect sealing.
SMA actuators react to a heat source (natural or artificial) and return to its original shape generating a strength useful to deploy antenna or others satellite components.
SMA components can be used to clamp a mechanism. Temperature increase enables the component to return to its original shape and locking or unlocking the mechanism.
Smart modification of wing profile can be achieved by the use of SMA components.
