Company Profile (Cambridge Mechatronics Ltd.)

Cambridge Mechatronics Ltd. logo
Cambridge Mechatronics Limited (CML) is a multidisciplinary engineering company that leverages smart materials to design and develop miniature motors (actuators) for use across a variety of applications.
CML's patented platform technology uses a smart material called shape memory alloy (SMA). CML has world-leading expertise in designing SMA-based actuators for electronic devices. The SMA wires in CML's actuators are less than a human hair in diameter and can be controlled to an accuracy of the wavelength of light. These actuators are particularly suited to applications that require high precision and force in a compact and lightweight design.
