Meet The Prototyping Grant Winner

Meet The Prototyping Grant Winner

After lengthy and careful consideration uFluidix is pleased to announce the winner of the 2016-2017 Prototyping Grant.


The winner is

Shaw Mountain Technology 

• Congratulations! •


SMT_MSMMicropump-300x281Shaw Mountain Technology (SMT) is a Boise-based company (Idaho, USA) that specializes in shape memory alloys, particularly the magnetic shape memory alloy Ni-Mn-Ga, and develop various technologies within the fields of sensors, microfluidics, energy harvesters, and actuators.

This grant covers USD 50,000 of design and fabrication services from uFluidix for the development of the magnetic shape memory (MSM) micropump, created by Shaw Mountain Technology, for one year up to a maximum defined with no strings attached.

«The MSM micropump utilizes a heterogeneous magnetic field from a diametrically magnetized permanent magnet to locally strain the material nearest to the poles of the magnet.  The resulting small cavity follows the poles of the magnet when the magnet is rotated.  The MSM micropump captures this motion by placing the material within a microfluidic channel.  Fluid from the inlet side of the channel is peristically transported to the outlet using the MSM effect.»
