Compliant Transducer Systems (CTsystems) Ltd is a technology driven spin-off company of Empa Dübendorf, Switzerland, founded in August 2011 (ct-systems.ch). Development, manufacturing and commercialization of compliant electro mechanical transducer systems represent the mission of the CTsystems. As broker of the Electro-Active Polymer (EAP) integration technology the main activities of our company is focussed on demand oriented business in different application fields for compliant transducers, where our core processing competence always comprises the fundamental business task. The envisaged applications are representing devices designed for very different purpose, but manufac-tured by the same processing method. We seek close cooperation with interested industrial compa-nies, which are well established in the specific application field. Collaborative enterprise actions with common business interests and using complementary capabilities offering a pronounced win-win situ-ation represent the basic business approach of CTsystems.
The key technology and core knowhow of CTsystems is based on designing and producing of EAP in multi-layer stack configuration with contraction motion when electric voltage is applied. In this context our highly specialized and patented manufacturing technology has a unique position and enables the fabrication of soft transducers in different size and shape.
Our product is a compliant electro-mechanical transducer based on stacked dielectric polymer, which is producing noise-free and efficient, controllable contraction motion when voltage is applied. These compact and inexpensive devices are used as soft actuator-sensor transducers in highly integrated mechatronic systems in the field of automotive (transportation), multimedia, robotic and automation industry, just to name a few. Polymer actuators outperform complex conventional electromagnetic, pi-ezoelectric and electromechanical designs due to the combination of high robustness, low energy con-sumption, high energy density and absence of complex mechanical (metallic) parts.
