We are proud to announce the completion of an investment into the Deep-Tech German Start-Up MemetisGmbH which produces the world’s most compact and lightest commercially available valves driven by shape memory actuators. Thanks to this partnership we further strengthening our leadership in shape memory valves and our presence in the lifescience and healthtech market.
Memetis will be joining forces with Dolphin Fluidics, founded by Fluid-o-Tech to enter the digital proportional valves based on shape memory actuators spaces with the aim to overcome the limits of solenoid based electromechanical valves, with accurate, low energy, silent, digital enabled solutions. The extremely compact valves of Memetis complement the portfolio in an ideal way: with our experience and an extensive and strong patent portfolio we are the world leader group for digital valves based on Shape Memory technology from micro to macro.
Memetis GmbH started as a Spin-Off from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where co-founders spent several years researching different applications and properties of shape memory alloys. The company designs the smallest and most powerful actuators based on SMA foil and thick film technology used in a variety of innovative industries, for instance in the diagnostic, analytical and medical sector.
For Fluid-o-Tech this is a key enabling block to support ist transition to smart, high value added solution powering new user’s experience.
