What is SMA?
SMA stands for Smart Memory Alloy. It consists of a unique family of advanced materials characterized by super elasticity and its ability to assume predefined shapes when subjected to heat.
In today’s world manufacturers of miniature cameras and valves call for parts that are minuscule, light weight and completely silent. They also demand electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), low power usage and the least ecological footprint - making SMA technology the perfect fit.
Through extensive R&D, ASG have become the leading manufacturer of SMA actuators and valves for these markets.
ASG offer Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) to drive actuators in a proportional mode using resistance feedback which requires no extra sensor.
Our innovative SMA actuators and valves largely replace Piezo, VCM and DC-Motor technologies.
