PI Releases Actuators Brochure

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
AUBURN, Mass., July 20, 2010 — Piezoceramic actuator and precision motion-control equipment provider PI (Physik Instrumente) LP released a new brochure for its lever-amplified piezo flexure actuators.

The brochure features a variety of newly designed flexure actuators for OEMs and presents a host of new applications, including microfluidics, biotechnology, medical engineering, mechatronics, machining, adaptronics, laser technology and metrology.

While traditionally used in atomic force microscopy, nanotechnology and semiconductor applications, piezo actuators can do more than just nanometers, according to the company. 

PI's PiezoMove actuators, combining flexure-guided motion with long travel ranges up to 1 mm, are compact, easy to integrate and require no maintenance. If nanometer precision is required, closed-loop versions are available.

The brochure can be ordered by mail or downloaded on the company’s site.

Mechanical device intended for the translation (rotational and linear) using high precision control from electronically operated circuits. See linear actuator; rotary actuator.
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
