What is a piezoelectric motor?
Piezoelectric motors: The better alternative
Piezoelectric motors have evolved from their beginnings in laboratories to use in mass production industrial applications. Modern piezo motor designs provide a higher level of performance from a smaller size, produce higher resolution movement, and require less power and energy than other types of positioning technologies…
Principle of operation
Motorized valves are used throughout many of the largest industries such as medical devices, industrial and lab analysis equipment, food and drug, semiconductor, as well as aerospace and automotive. The vast majority of motorized valves rely on conventional EM motors, which can be bulky, slow responding and inefficient.
Piezo Motion has collaborated with a range of customers from different industries to develop customized motorized valve solutions based on Piezo Motion’s piezoelectric technology. The result has been a range of unique valves which have been shown to provide a superior slim-line and efficient design compared to conventional valves used in many applications. Furthermore, the Piezo Motion piezoelectric valves react faster and are more precise, while at the same time they consume zero energy in the hold position (for a list of advantages see table).
From imaging to scanning and robotic surgical devices; the applications for piezoelectric motor technology is broad and the technology is key in providing the best care possible.
From piezoelectric motors for use in aircraft cabin equipment to miniature robotic systems for use in satellites, Piezo Motion offers a broad range of high performance solutions for high precision motion control systems.
