Why we called it as Nitinol? Nitinol is taken from the elements of—nickel (Ni) and titanium (Ti)—and the scientific group that discovered it—the Naval Ordnance Laboratory (NOL). A team from the NOL discovered the alloy while searching for materials that could be used in tools for dismantling magnetic mines.
What are the most popular applications of Nitinol(SMA)? Nitinol shape memory alloys have been widely used: A.Industrial B.Aerospace C.Medical D.Toys E.Training Aids F.Automatic control science and other several of enterprises at home and abroad.However, since the increasing performance requirements and size restrictions, here we need to develop high stiffness nickle and titanium shape memory alloys.
