These properties are used in many industrial and research applications including precision automation, micro-assembly, high resolution microscopy, mobile devices, opto-mechanics, and scientific instrumentation.
PI’s new comprehensive piezo motor solutions catalog covers a large number of linear, rotary, and multi-axis motion systems based on a variety of piezo motor types along with their appropriate controllers and drivers.
Ultrasonic piezo motors, for example are preferred for high-speed applications; inertia motors are small and cost efficient; PiezoWalk drives provide the highest forces up to 800N and piezo-ratchet drives can replace micrometers in remote “set and forget” applications.
All piezoelectric motors are self-locking, field-less, and not affected by magnetic fields, and can be easily integrated mechanically. Appropriate versions are also available for applications in vacuum.
