18–20 June 2012 ACTUATOR 2012, 13th International Conference and Exhibition on New Actuators and Drive Systems

Bremen, Germany

For the 13th time since 1988, from 18 to 20 June 2012 the Bremen Fair and Congress Center will become the Mecca of the actuator community. Around 500 participants from all over the world, about half of them from industry, will be coming together for ACTUATOR 2012, 7th International Conference on New Actuators, which will be accompanied by a highly specialised exhibition with international participation. Ever smaller drive systems are based on new technologies that have nothing in common with conventional electric motors. Examples include mass-produced products such as piezo actuators for fuel injection systems and new drives for autofocus cameras, together with low-volume production items such as grippers for micro-assembly. Micro-actuator technology is becoming increasingly multi-faceted, making it more difficult to keep an overview of the market. Alongside piezo actuators, the industrial sector is also witnessing the emergence of electro- and magnetorheological fluids, shape-memory actuators and electro-active polymers. Furthermore, the field of adaptronics is also going through a phase of rapid development.
