Elastic Sensors and Actuators
Electroactive Polymer Development Services for Your Application
What we do…
We are specialized in Electroactive Polymers (EAPs) – a groundbreaking stretchable sensing and actuation technology.
We offer tailored sensor and actuator solutions, specifically designed for our clients’ applications, based on EAP technology.
LEAP Technology offers a range of services to utilize the unique characteristics of soft actuators and stretch sensors in your products.
Our standard and customized products have a wide range of application scope including industrial automation, wearables, automotive, and structural monitoring.
The core EAP component comprises a Dielectric Elastomer film sandwiched between two deformable electrodes, thus forming a stretchable capacitor.
Low-cost materials, fast manufacturing techniques
WORKING PRINCIPLE – SENSORS
In sensor mode, the change of EAP capacitance is measured when deformed by a human, machine, or structure.
80% strain, 10 million cycles, µm resolution.
WORKING PRINCIPLE – ACTUATORS
In actuator mode, application of an electrical stimulus (voltage) deforms the EAP resulting in a soft deformable electromechanical actuator.
Low consumption, lightweight, highly customizable.
