Abstract
In order to strengthen the position of CNT actuator technology and fasten the transfer of scientific results into application development and market introduction scientific institutes AIST Kansai and Fraunhofer IPA cooperated in the field of electroactive polymers. Automated dosing of small amounts of liquids normally involves quite large pipettes and motors for pipette actuation. Miniaturized pipettes can enable new areas, in which micro dosing is demanded and could be particularly beneficial in the field of medical or (bio-) chemical applications. The approach was the direct integration of a bending CNT actuator into a PCB design, which enables a frictionless induction of movement onto a liquid. The driving electronics control the actuator with a low voltage and can be placed on the same PCB. The result is a smooth, tailorable dispensation of liquid from the pipette with the ability to integrate the pipette into a fully automated system.
