Nitinol Sample Pack - 7 Varieties 0.5 - 1 - 2mm, 15 - 40 - 60 - 80ºC Transition Phase Shape Memory Alloy

Nitinol Sample Pack - 7 Varieties 0.5 -

Low-temperature activation, medium heat activation, and high heat activation wires in different diameters. Contents: 1 foot each of 0.5mm 70C, 1mm 80C, 1mm 40C, 1mm 15C, and 2mm 80C nitinol wire and 6" samples of 2mm 40C and 2mm 60C. This will give you a wide selection to experiment with to pick out what works best for your project as each wire exhibits different properties. Yes - it comes pre-trained STRAIGHT from the factory which is how you want it. You can re-train it if you want to take on a new shape. The wire has a lustrous titanium color (dark grey) with a bluish oxide tint on its surface. When freshly cut, the inner core is nickel white. Nitinol is very abrasion resistant and has self-healing properties, so the wire is quite hard to cut and kink. It feels very smooth and shiny to the touch. It does not require any special handling or protections from oxidation or moisture, and is non-toxic. Do not over heat it, as that will damage the property. If you are using electricity instead of hot water to activate it, be sure to use a current limiting circuit.

Kellogg's Research Labs, Standard Temp 115°F (45°C), 0.020"

Nitinol, also known as Ni-Ti is one of several shape memory alloys available. The shape memory effect comes from the mixture of nickel and titanium transferring between the martensite and austenite phases of crystal structure. Basically, what this looks like is you have a wire that you can straighten, bend into any shape, mash, etc. and then place it in hot water to watch it come back to its original shape. The uses for this are endless. These make wonderful magic tricks for when you dunk the wire into someone's coffee, the wire turns into the card that they have in their hand. They're great for birthday parties to see your child's amazement when this simple piece of wire turns into their name when someone 'accidentally' spills coffee on it. Other uses include robotics, heat engines, science projects, practical jokes, artery stents for a bypass surgery, the only limitation is your creativity.

Nitinol Memory Metal Heat Engine - Nitinol Wire Stirling Engine

Nitinol Memory Metal Heat Engine - Nitinol Wire

This fully assembled Memory Metal Heat Engine demonstrates the conversion of heat energy into mechanical energy. This simple Nitinol Wire Heat Engine is constructed of a boomerang shaped clear acrylic holder with two high quality cast aluminum pulleys. The pulleys feature ball bearing construction for fluid movement. Simply immerse the leading edge of the smaller pulley into an 45 - 90 Degree Celsius water bath, give the larger wheel a gentle spin and watch it fly! These engines will work in either direction. This engine really moves, easily topping 500 RPM! ----SPECIFICATIONS---- Overall Length: 8" / 20cm Thickness: @ 1" / 25mm Weight: 4 oz. Minimum Operating Temperature (Starting Temperature May be Higher): 45 Deg. C Maximum Operating Temperature: 90 Deg. C ----CONCEPT---- This ingenious memory metal engine exploits a property of the Nitinol metal alloy that makes it want to return to the shape it was originally formed in when produced. This property of Nitinol alloy is known as the "memory effect". Nitinol wire is produced in straight lengths at a temperature of @600 Degrees Celsius. After it is allowed to cool, it is manually deformed and joined into a closed loop and positioned around the pulleys. When submerged into hot water (@ 80 Degrees C), the Nitinol wire tries to retu...

Nitinol Memory Wire 12" Length x .03" Diameter

Nitinol Memory Wire 12" Length x .03"

Nitinol Memeory Wire is a Shaped Memory Effect (SME). The alloy can be made to remember a particular shape. Once a shape has been remembered, the alloy may be bent out of shape. Then returned to its original shape by heating the alloy about it transition temperature. This SME property is used in a toy called Memory Wire. You can bend the Memory Wire toy into any shape you want, then place it in hot water and the wire quickly whips itself back into shape. It is interesting to watch this wire almost magically unfold and uncoil itself back into its original shape. The Memory Wire toy is made of nitinol wire with a low transition temperature (the temperature of hot water). The force generated when the wire is reverting is surprisingly strong. One square inch of Nitinol material generates a shape returning force of + 30,000 PSI.

Nitinol Memory Wire Spring Kit w/Teachers Guide

Nitinol Memory Wire Spring Kit w/Teachers

In our experience the 0.5mm diameter nitinol offers the best in terms of ease of manipulation The properties of Nitinol (pronounced "night-in-all") were discovered by William J. Buehler and Frederick Wang at the Naval Ordinance Laboratory in 1959. Its name is derived from its composition of nickel and titanium, as well as its place of discover at the Naval Ordinance Laboratory. At the time, Beuhler was trying to create a better nose cone for missiles, and during a presentation the folded up piece of nitinol came into contact with a lighter. Much to the surprise of everyone in attendance, the material retook its previous shape. The nitinol alloy exhibits two unique, related properties: shape memory, and superelasticity. With its shape memory, nitinol is capable of undergoing deformation at one temperature, and when exposed to a heat supply above its transformation temperature, it will recover is original, undeformed shape. Its superelasticity occurs in a narrow temperature range just above the transformation temperature, wherein it exhibits enormous elastic capacity, in the range of 10-30x that of ordinary metal. It is an excellent demonstration and teaching tool for both physics and chemistry classes, as it can be used as an educational aid for shape memory, superelasticity, a...

WYTCHNITI-31 Nitinol #1 Wire, Light or Dark Oxide Finish, Super Elastic Condition, Precision Tolerance, ASTM F2063, 0.010" Diameter, 73" Length (Pack of 5)

WYTCHNITI-31 Nitinol #1 Wire, Light or Dark Oxide

The nitinol #1 wire has a super-elastic temper, light or dark oxide finish, precision tolerance, and meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM F2063 specifications. Nitinol #1 provides corrosion resistance and has a super-elastic temper, which is spring like and ensures that the wire returns to its original shape after bending. The material is nonmagnetic and can be heated to a certain temperature to enable shape-memory characteristics. The oxide finish provides mild corrosion resistance. Nickel titanium, also known as nitinol, is a corrosion-resistant metal that can exhibit shape-memory characteristics. When in its shape-memory temper, the material can be contorted but will return to its original shape when heated to a specific temperature. Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Magnetism characterizes how much the material is repelled by or attracted to a magnet.

Shape Memory Alloys, Muscle Wires and Robotics

Shape Memory Alloys, Muscle Wires and

Muscle wires, nitinol, Flexinol or -formally called- shape-memory alloys (SMA) present a huge demand today because of their high power/weight ratio. That means that, when combined with cheap, light-weighted batteries available in the market, they are the best choice for mobile robotics. This book is a thorough study of the state of the art about how this technology is used in robotics. It provides a full overview of the concepts as well as practical examples of implementation that can be performed in a university laboratory. The author, Benjamin C. Lawson, has focused on writing a book that comprises all the basic knowledge available about the technology, with an accessible and easy-to-read book, valid for students, professors, professional and even amateurs of robotics.
