Nitinol Plates are available in superelastic (no memory) and SMA (shape memory) formulations

Edgetech Industries LLC offers nitinol plates (nickel-titanium alloy plate, shape memory alloy plate, superelastic alloy plates) with different Af point, allowing for a customization of alloy compositions, heat treatment conditions, surface finishes, loading plateaus, and tensile strengths.
Nitinol plate is ideal for laser cutting, electrical discharge machining (EDM), and photo etching, enabling the creation of detailed, small scaled structures. Nitinol in sheet form, giving designers more opportunities to work with Nitinol. Using flat substrates allows for the rapid production of small components nested within sheets, or the ability to create large and unique structures that would not be possible when starting from wire or tubing.

Nitinol is known for its thermomechanical properties of superelasticity and shape memory effect. Shape memory refers to the ability of nickel-titanium alloys to deform at a certain temperature and then return to their original formed shape when heated above their transformation temperature. Superelasticity occurs in a narrow temperature range slightly above its transformation temperature; in this case, no heating is required to restore the formed shape, and the material exhibits enormous elasticity, about 10-30 times that of ordinary metals.
