COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF TITANIUM NICKEL (NITINOL) SHAPE MEMORY ALLOYS have been many since the invention of the material by the U.S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory in the early 1960s. The biggest commercial success has been in the field of biomedical devices utilizing the “Super-Elastic” properties of this remarkable material in a variety of applications from cardiac stents to orthodontic braces.

TINI AEROSPACE HAS BEEN AT THE FOREFRONT of many research and development projects in everything from Down Hole to Automotive applications.  Over the last 25 years we have manufactured SMA driven Actuators, Valves, Motors, Tactile Feedback Devices, Switches, and even Sprinkler valves. More recently, the development of our SCSMA (Single Crystal Shape Memory Alloy) technology has expanded the application potential to devices which can provide a dampening function as well as energy storage and release at extreme temperatures. Commercial applications are many and include:

  • SEARCH & RESCUE
  • AUTOMOTIVE
  • FIRE SAFETY
  • EMERGENCY INFLATION SYSTEMS
  • DOWN HOLE
  • MEDICAL

ALL PRODUCTS ARE NON-PYROTECHNIC & FIELD RESETTABLE
