Abstract

This experimental study describes the fabrication process to make an approximate linear contraction type electro-active ionic polymer metal composite (IPMC) for using in the application of linear actuator. IPMC normally is a bending type actuator, but the lack of force and the bending type actuation caused the inconvenience for utilization. The main objective of the research is trying to create a new type of contractile IPMC actuator. The fabrication process, the dynamic characteristics of the specimen, and the actuation of linear contraction type electro-active IPMC are verified.
