Piezo Actuators

Used for everything from semiconductor testing to biotech to aerospace, piezo actuators change electrical energy into linear motion with efficient speed, force, and practically unlimited resolution.

These devices are quite distinctive in their ability to merge force, pace, and precision into a little package. Device makers typically place actuators inside larger framework to offer highly accurate guidance and amplified-motion capabilities.

Piezo actuators allow for easy position shifts within milliseconds at sub-nanometers scales. There is no mechanical wear and no frictional parts to restrict resolution, which makes these devices ideal for precision motion and positioning applications. Types of actuators include modular, screw, and replaceable-tip.
