The application of smart materials in highly integrated mechatronic components, such as precision positioning systems, is technically more advanced and only in a few cases employed in industrial applications. Appropriate smart materials include piezo ceramics, shape memory alloys or electromagnetically activated fluids and polymers. The presentation gives an overview of these materials, their physical working principle and certain aspects of their multifunctional character. One application example of each of these materials will further show their potential but also limitations considering their applicability.
