SOFT MUSCLE-LIKE PERFORMANCE

HOW IT WORKS

Today, automated motion is produced by rigid components that are costly, energy consuming, and noisy. Using inspiration from nature, Artimus Robotics takes a radically new approach to linear motion with HASEL actuator technology.

HASEL actuation technology enables smart, versatile and compact motion solutions. Originally developed at the University of Colorado Boulder and spun out into Artimus Robotics in 2018, this breakthrough electroactive polymer actuation technology enables the benefits and eliminates the downfalls of prior soft robotics technologies. 

HASEL (Hydraulically Amplified Self-healing ELectrostatic) 

HASEL actuation technology operates when electrostatic forces are applied to a flexible polymer pouch and dielectric liquid to drive shape change in a soft structure. These principles can be applied to achieve a contracting motion, expanding motion, or other complex deformations.  HASEL electroactive polymer actuation technology is electrically driven and couples electrostatic and hydraulic forces so a wide variety of actuation modes are possible.
