Abstract
The mechanical properties of shape memory alloys (SMAs) are finding more and more attention in micro-system technology. However, only a few processes are available for machining of miniaturized SMA-components. During the machining process, changes of the shape memory properties due to the extension of the heat effected zone or mechanical tensions have to be avoided. Especially for complex geometries with dimensions in the submillimeter-range, these requirements are difficult to fulfill.
