Piezo actuators

Piezo specialist PI's flexure-based piezo actuators such as the P-601 series provide up to 10 times larger travel ranges (to >1000 microns) than classical piezo stack actuators in a low-profile package, with virtually unlimited resolution and lifetime.

Piezo specialist PI's flexure-based piezo actuators such as the P-601 series provide up to 10 times larger travel ranges (to >1000 microns) than classical piezo stack actuators in a low-profile package, with virtually unlimited resolution and lifetime. The stiff construction allows for fast response with rise times much shorter than 1 ms. The design involves no friction, no lubricants, and no wear. Because of the many advantages over motor/leadscrew-driven positioners, flexure actuators are used in fast-focusing mechanisms and for other precision-positioning tasks in pharmaceutical and biotech. In life science applications, piezo actuators can be used for micro-dispensing and valve control applications, or for scanning and fast optical adjustments in drug screening apparatus.
