Piezo Ceramic Actuators, Subassemblies Catalog Available
Mar 2005
AUBURN, Mass., March 25 -- A catalog of piezo ceramic actuators and custom subassemblies is available from PI's piezo ceramic division, PI Ceramic. It features a wide variety of precision actuators and components with hundreds of standard and custom models.

The 50-page catalog is an essential reference book on the fundamentals of piezo actuators and their applications in today's high-tech fields, from semiconductor technologies to aerospace engineering.

In addition to product specifications and drawings, it includes a tutorial on the basics of piezo actuators and how to get most out of this technology.

The following products groups are featured:

  • Low-voltage PICMA ceramic insulated multilayer actuators

  • PICMA chip mini-actuators

  • Multi-axis shear actuators

  • High-force stack actuators: forces to 100,000 N (~10 tons)

  • Multilayer bender actuators

  • High-force tubular stack actuators

  • Scanner tube actuators
Piezo actuators provide motion with subnanometer precision and submillisecond response. They are mainly used in the following industries:
  • Semiconductor test & metrology

  • Data storage

  • Photonics alignment and packaging

  • Medical analytical equipment

  • Biotechnology, life sciences, microdispensing applications

  • Optics, lasers, interferometry

  • Scanning microscopy

  • Micromanufacturing

  • Aerospace

  • Precision machining

The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
