AdaptaMat Ltd is the inventor and manufacturer of NiMnGa-based Magnetic Shape Memory (MSM) Alloys. MSM is also referred to as FSMA alloy.
AdaptaMat Ltd (Helsinki, Finland) — the pioneer of Magnetic Shape Memory alloys and MSM-based devices.
Magnetic Shape Memory (MSM) alloys are a class of smart materials that produce mechanical motion when subjected to a magnetic field. Besides this mentioned giant magnetostrictive effect, MSM exhibits several other functional properties such as pronounced Villari effect, resistance and permeability proportional to the material’s length, and high temperature SMA effect. These features combined with the other functional properties of MSM alloy are making it an ideal platform for a multitude of MSM-based applications.
Today AdaptaMat manufactures high-quality MSM single-crystals and has demonstrated several MSM-based devices such as MSM-based vibration energy harvesting, MSM-based displacement sensors and MSM actuators with self-sensing capability for positioning and proportional control.
