PiezoMove

Share this on social media:

The PiezoMove series of lever-amplified piezo actuators from Physik Instrumente (PI) is available with various levels of integration for OEM customers. Offering up to 500μm of travel, these actuators are suited to a variety of applications – including dispensers, valves for microdosing devices and pumps in medical technology and biotechnology – and can be customised to suit individual requirements.

The PiezoMove series offers response time of just a few milliseconds and, with the option of sub-nanometre resolution, can be used for both static and dynamic applications, such as cavity tuning in laser optics and microscanning imaging. For enhanced precision, optional strain gauge sensors (SGS) improve linearity up to 99.8 per cent, and there is a range of controllers to ensure the optimum combination of performance and cost for an application.
