As an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) your time and resources should be spent on designing the systems and assemblies that you are the expert at.
At Piezo Motion Corporation, let us use our motion design expertise to implement the perfect subassembly for your application. Whether it is minimizing the footprint of your product, maximizing efficiencies, or increasing the precision of your application, we have the design capabilities to modify our piezo motors to solve any application.
From modifying a connector or changing the stroke length to custom control boards and ground-up designs, no modification is too small or too large. We will work with you and your team to ensure a design that meets the specifications of your project in a timely manner.
Piezo Motion Corporation offers a wide variety of standard products that are designed to meet general application requirements for general applications, but what if the motor needs to meet specific environmental requirements, needs to meet certain volumetric constraints or other mechanical considerations for easier integration? What if a special connector, cable length, or other electrical consideration is needed for easier integration? The engineering design team at Piezo Motion can modify or customize their existing products to make integration easier. From custom connectors, and cable lengths to special housings and packaging they can shape the standard product to meet all the requirements for your application.
Piezo Motion has the ability to modify any current catalog motor to remove some or all the ferromagnetic material in it making the motors useable in applications where electromagnetic interference (EMI) is a critical requirement. Our motion technology leverages piezoelectric ceramics that deform at certain excitation frequencies. This means that we can create motion without the need for electromagnetic fields which are highly susceptible to EMI as well as pollute the environment with EMI. These principles can also be used in a ground-up design that can be a turn-key solution for your application. If you have any further questions in regards to our non-magnetic motor capabilities reach out to us directly.
While most stepper motors have a maximum of 400 steps per revolution, a Piezo Motion rotary piezo motor has ~640,000 steps in a single rotation with each step at full torque, stepping in 10 µrad increments.
Our piezoceramic resonator design allows for a low profile Z-height for our motors. We also offer a range of custom shaft types (including hollowshaft), and various options for motor mounting and interfacing.
Within 30 to 50 µs, the piezo motor has made its first step and motion has commenced, compared to a stepper motor with a typical 15 to 20 ms to start motion.
The non-magnetic rotary piezomotor contains no ferrous materials and is completely non-magnetic. Immune to EMI and RF interference and with no emissions, they are ideal for a range of sensitive and specialized applications (including MRI).
Piezo Motion’s rotary motors consume zero power at holding torque and very low power at slow speed yielding the possibility of very efficient overall duty.
The design contains no copper windings, magnets, or ferrous laminations making it ideally suited to weight-critical applications. Our motor housings are lightweight, reinforced thermoplastic, and the motor operates at ultrasonic frequencies, making it virtually silent.
Our reduced part count means fewer failures. With no piezoelectric bi-material joints to delaminate or multilayer stack joints to crack, there is no susceptibility to moisture or shorting.
Motion systems can be extremely complex, requiring multiple axes of motion to achieve a singular objective. From single-arm robotics to multi-axes scanning, more and more applications require motion in two or more axes operating quickly, smoothly, and with precise movements. There are many challenges around multi-axes systems both mechanically and electronically that make them difficult to design and build. At Piezo Motion designing and building custom multi-axes assemblies is part of their core competencies. Leveraging years of engineering knowledge and motion design, they can work with you to help find solutions to the most difficult motion applications.
