With the constant progress of technology, the updating of products expedites year by year, causes the recycle of waste products catching more and more attention. A main factor that restricts the recycle of products is the low efficiency and high costs in disassembling the waste products. One of solutions is active disassembly using smart materials (ADSM). The elements and characteristics of ADSM are introduced, and the design methods of products based on ADSM and the design rules of active disassembly devices and active disassembly products are put forward. Based on these design methods and rules, some remote controls are redesigned. The active disassembly experiments of redesigned remotes show that the disassembly efficiency is obviously enhanced, which proves the feasibility and advantage of design methods based on ADSM.
