PiezoMove® vs. Conventional Lever Amplified Piezo Actuators
PI's new flexure-guided piezo linear actuators provide much larger travel than standard, direct drive piezo actuators in a low profile package, with virtually unlimited resolution (nanometer and below) and lifetime. What sets PiezoMove® actuators apart are the internal frictionless flexure-guides, making additional bearings or guiding mechanisms obsolete when integrating the actuators into a positioning system.
Closed-Loop Option Offers Very High Precision
PiezoMove® linear actuators are available with integrated, absolute-measuring position sensors for closed-loop operation with high linearity and nanometer range repeatability.
Very Fast Response: Millisecond Settling Times
The stiff design with high resonant frequencies allows settling times donw to the sub-millisecond range, ideal for highly dynamic applications.
