CeSMA - Expertise in intelligent electromechanical materials for research and industry
The Center Smart Materials and Adaptive Systems (CeSMA) at the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC in Würzburg, Germany, is researching novel adaptive materials and developing them into customer-specific systems for the automotive, medical technology, white goods, mechanical engineering and consumer sectors. Examples are flexible mechanical sensors - also integrable in textiles, electrically or magnetically controllable actuators, electromechanical energy converters, adaptive dampers, controllable clutches and brakes, switchable fixing systems and control elements with haptic feedback.
Benefit from our broad range of scientific and technical materials and technology and interdisciplinary cooperation at the latest scientific and industrial levels in terms of:
- Development of new practical smart materials for sensors, actuators, generators, dampers etc.
- Development of new applications for Smart Materials
- Development of new technologies based on smart materials in industrial transfer projects
