Home > Press > Motion-Amplified Piezo Actuator Cuts Costs: P-604 PiezoMove® by PI

Abstract:
Piezo motion specialist Physik Instrumente (PI) has added a new member to its PiezoMove® family of motion-amplified, flexure-guided piezo linear actuators.

The new P-604 model was designed with emphasis on cost, size and travel range.

Motion-Amplified Piezo Actuator Cuts Costs: P-604 PiezoMove® by PI

Auburn, MA | Posted on April 25th, 2013

Applications
Providing a large displacement of 300µm in a very small package of only 20x13x4mm, the actuator was optimized for OEM instrumentation applications in fields such as precision-optics, life-sciences, medical design, bio/nano-technology and microfluidics / nano dispensers.

More information on the new piezo flexure actuator.

Piezo Basics
At the heart of the motion-amplifying flexure design is a multilayer piezo element, of the same proprietary construction as the ones used on the Mars Rover for their extreme reliability and lifetime of 100 billion cycles.

Piezo-ceramic drives directly convert electrical energy into mechanical motion. They are energy efficient and provide very fast response and virtually unlimited positional resolution.

Custom Designs
PI has a long history of working with instrumentation manufacturers and can easily modify existing designs or completely customize piezo devices to fit the exact requirements of the application.
