New Manufacturing Technique for Fabrication of Shape Memory Alloy Foams

Reference number
Coordinator CHALMERS TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLA AKTIEBOLAG - Institutionen för material- och tillverkningsteknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration December 2010 - April 2012
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

We plan to test the possibility of manufacturing shape memory alloy foams using microwave sintering. In principal we will explore the possibility of using microwaves for a faster and more energy efficient sintering. To validate the proposed hypothesis, Chalmers has joined forces with Stockholm University where the microwave sintering will be carried out. To compare the results from microwave sintering with conventional sintering, Callo AB is willing to contribute and perform the conventional sintering of the foam.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
