Multilayer stack-actuators based on dielectric elastomers offer a considerable amount of deformation and force generation with a comparatively high energy density. In order to design such an actuator in accordance with the specifications of a certain application, a design tool is proposed. This tool considers constraints for the design of a DE stack-actuator, e.g. due to inactive areas or the influence of mechanical interfaces required for the integration into an application. The Design tool is validated via FEA and experimental tests. Finally, the characteristics of prototype actuators produced with different materials are rated in terms of static and dynamic characteristics.
