The 12th International Exhibition on Smart Actuators and Drive Systems will present components, system approaches and applications of smart actuators and low-power electromagnetic drives based on conventional (electromagnetic) and innovative working principles (new actuators), and associated subjects. The range of topics also includes measurement techniques, control concepts and circuits, driver components and units, system integration, layout and simulation tools etc.

Within the online exhibition area, we will again have application oriented presentations on a product level, besides the in-depth conference programme. This Exhibition Forum provides additional information about the exhibition topics on the product level especially to visitors of the exhibition. Exhibitors and other parties are therefore invited to show contributions and demonstrate their products.

precise pumps - smart solutions. 

HNP Mikrosysteme offers pumps that dose the smallest amounts of liquid extremely precisely. Our well established micro annular gear pumps allow smallest dosing volumes from 0.25 µl and volume flow rates from 1 µl/h to 1152 ml/min.
Applications of mzr®-pumps are in laboratory automation, pharmaceutical production, medical and analytical technology, sample preparation and more.
At Actuator 2022 we will show a new design of a magnetic shape memory alloy pump prototype for volume flows in a range up to 1 ml/min. This msm®-pump consists of a replaceable pump head and a fixed drive unit, which forms a travelling cavity on the magnetic shape memory alloy stick by a rotating magnet.
Applications of msm®-pumps can be found in bio-, chip and medical technology, where a disposable pump element is mandatory.
