Smart Technology Limited manufactures and develops products based on Smart materials like
Electro Rheological (ER) Fluids and Piezo elements.
Electro Rheological Fluids
Smart electro-rheological fluid is regarded as the best ER fluid in the world.
ER fluids can accurately change flow properties from liquid to solid in a matter
of milliseconds and are therefore suitable for applications where conventional
hydraulics and pneumatics are unusable. Smart already has many patents based on
different ER applications but is always eager to exploit new business opportunities.

Smart Technology and Partners have completed an EU funded research
project ITACTI "Smart Interactive
Tactile Interface Effecting Graphical Display for the Visually Impaired"
The device uses ER fluid for its operation. For further information on the
ITACTI project click here.
Smart is developing and advancing
this technology, taking it from the laboratory to the market place. Smart
actuators are very robust and effective industrial components. Smart actuators
are configured to give high resolution positioning by employing piezo-electric
effects; motion is achieved by placing the object to be driven in direct
contact with the piezo-electric element. A single actuator can produce
multiple degrees of freedom allowing motion in two or more different
Applications include precision welding and micro-hole EDM drilling machine tools.
