100 Billion Cycles Without Failures or Loss in Performance: Piezo Actuators – The First Choice for Reliability
The service life and reliability of piezo actuators strongly depends on the environmental conditions at the site of application. Humidity, temperature and operating voltage are of considerable influence. The answer lies in optimized materials and manufacturing processes, appropriate design and the choice of suitable insulation.
Graphic or computer applications with high memory requirements, high-resolution digital camera systems, not to mention the need for very low power consumption require increasingly higher packing densities in semiconductor production.
The Dimensional Measuring machine DM401 Series of the DYMACO Group is a very compact and flexible workstation for in-line automated dimensional measuring of headlamps in the Automotive Industry.
PI presents its new digital motion controller for the V-273 and V-900KPIC industrial voice coil drives for force, position and velocity control.
Durable and Reliable Under All Conditions:What Makes Piezo Actuators Suitable for Industrial and Space Applications?
Piezo actuators convert electrical energy directly into mechanical energy and allow for motions with a resolution in the sub-nanometer range.
