Ultrasonic Transducers: Using Industrial Ultrasound for Distance Control, Structural Monitoring and Object Recognition – Advanced Piezoelectric Design
Ultrasound can be used for industrial inspection and automation - the technology is similar to the one know from medical ultrasonic imaging. Piezoelectric ultrasonic transducers also find applications in non-contact distance measuring, structural health monitoring, object recognition and measuring instruments for volume, filling level, distance and acceleration. PI's piezoelectric transducer division PI Ceramic specializes in custom piezoelectric components and solutions for industrial automation, life science and medical engineering applications. Piezoelectric transducers are maintenance free, energy efficient and robust.
