WHAT ARE ARTIFICIAL MUSCLES?


Artificial muscles are material or devices that can reversibly contract, expand, or rotate due to an external stimulus.  These basic actuation responses can be combined to produce other types of motions creating very complex action arrangements.

These systems can work as a substitution for the hydraulic and motor drives found in daily life standard appliances to complex aerospace and robotics technology.

With Artificial Muscles, we can create game-changing systems that overcome the mechanical complexity.

RECONCEIVE MOTION WITH HeliAct®


LINTEC’s Nano-Science & Technology Center unveiled an unparalleled and incredible Artificial Muscles technology based on produced polyethylene and nylon fibers – HeliAct®.

HeliAct® provides self-powered intelligent systems, that sense their environment and use changes in it to power actuation.  Their applications range from the microscale to the kilometer-scale, making them an ideal technology for creating new, more powerful, efficient and smarter solutions in fields such as, prosthetics, robotics, home and industrial appliances, temperature regulators, automatically heat tracking mechanical systems.

HIGH POWER, ACQUIRABLE ARTIFICIAL MUSCLES


Create noiseless, thermal or elector-thermal powered motion systems, with conveniently actuated fiber shaped components.

HeliAct® technology is greener, long-life, low-cost and can replace the mechanical complexity of motors with fibers that you can conveniently actuate in highly-controlled manners.

Since HeliAct® Artificial Muscles provide millions of highly reversible cycles, there is a significant economic convenience because they represent fewer parts and simple maintenance.
