BioMetal Fiber Dimensions .15mm x 1 meter (or .006 x 39 inches
The BioMetal Fiber is a fiber-like actuator (drive unit) designed to contract (tense) and extend (relax) like muscles. The key feature of this product is its flexible, smooth movements like those of real life. Although soft and pliable like a nylon thread under normal conditions, it becomes stiff like a piano wire and sharply contracts, when a current is fed through it. If the passage of a current is stopped, it will soften and extend to its original length. The BMF can also be moved by changing its temperature. It begins to contract when heated to about 70?. If it is cooled to below the temperature, it will return to its original length. Because of its stable internal structure, the BMF has very high durability and exhibits stable operating characteristics. Being thin but capable of producing a powerful force.
