Terfenol-D was invented by the US Navy for use in high-power sonar systems. Additional applications for Terfenol-D include the Oil & Gas and Fuel Injector Industries. TdVib can manufacture Terfenol-D into a variety of shapes. We can also laminate the material for dynamic applications and integrate permanent magnets within the stack for biasing purposes as shown in the photo above.
Galfenol has many advantages over legacy smart materials. These advantages include its ability to be formed using a variety of metal working and machining processes. TdVib has produced Galfenol with a hot forged ‘u-shape’ as shown above. Galfenol can be machined to contain unique features, such as mating male and female threads.
