In attracting about 500 participants from more than 30 countries the 14th International Conference on New Actuators is the most important market place to meet leading international specialists, to share their expertise and to start business co-operations in the field of new actuator technologies.

The invitation to attend ACTUATOR is directed at executives and researchers from industrial companies as well as institutes, colleges and universities who are interested in the transfer of R&D results into innovative actuator applications and drive technologies.

Actuator 2014

ACTUATOR has been the key forum promoting actuators based on smart materials and micro technologies as well as their applications in all areas of engineering for more than twenty years now. Over the years a huge variety of ideas and results have been reported. A lot of them have been raised from vision to mass product. Among the success stories you will find quite a number of established applications of new actuators, in particular their well-known use in fuel injection, adaptive shock absorbers, nanopositioning, precision engineering like cameras lenses and other applications of miniaturised drives. 

In this way, ACTUATOR has launched the realisation of new product generations whose compactness and performance had not been able in conventional technologies. Small wonder that based on the ignition, new actuators are now rapidly opening up new markets.
