20 Years. 5000+ Release Devices. 100% Mission Success.

TINI AEROSPACE, INC. is the foremost manufacturer of mechanisms employing Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) materials. The most common of which is an alloy of Titanium and Nickel or TiNi, where the company derives its name. Among the products developed and manufactured are a family of high force release devices called the Frangibolt¨, an array of fast acting Pinpullers, a range of innovative Ejector Release Mechanisms (ERMs), and a host of other SMA Actuators. These NEAs or “Non Explosive Actuators” are designed to operate in a variety of environments ranging from the vacuum of space to the extreme pressure of deep sea.

  • TiNi products hold down and release solar panels, antennae, instrument cover doors, booms, heat shields, radiators, isolation systems, and other spacecraft deployables.
  • TiNi products have been used on scientific missions flown by NASA, ESA and JAXA on spacecrafts such as Clementine (first to travel to the moon since the Apollo program), Mars Global Surveyor, Messenger (to Mercury), New Horizons (to Pluto), JUNO (to Jupiter), Rosetta (Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko) and many others.
  • TiNi products are used on numerous commercial, academic, and government satellites flown for conducting scientific experimentation, earth observation, and telecommunication purposes.
  • TiNi supplies mission critical components to the great majority of Aerospace companies in the US, Europe and Japan.
  • TiNi products are used for ballast release, buoy detachment, payload separation, instrument recovery, and disentanglement maneuvers.
  • TiNi products have been used aboard underwater vehicles such as “Alvin” (the first manned submersible capable of traveling to the deepest regions of the ocean floor at 15000+ feet) as well as autonomous vehicles ranging in function from Military to Marine Ecology.
  • TiNi provides research and development of SMA products with experience in a broad range of industries including Medical, Automotive, Down-Hole, Tactile Feedback, and Fire Safety.
  • TiNi’s technical staff is made up of scientists, engineers, technicians, and machinists who have experience, skills, and know how to quickly and efficiently evaluate new concepts, develop prototypes, and help lead the way to production.
