Piezoelectric flexure drives provide fast, precision actuation with demonstrated reliability, into the billions of cycles. Easily added to a custom assembly, these devices are compact, operate with low voltage, deliver high torque, present short response time, and generate little to no heat. As the gold standard for precision, speed, and force in a compact design, piezo actuators operate with an absence of friction and wear, making them cost-effective too.
