Design Points to Remember

Piezo actuators offer unique and compelling advantages in nanometer resolution and high-speed applications. To obtain maximum performance while avoiding problems, however, piezoelectric characteristics need to be considered. Pulling, shear and torsional forces can damage the PZT ceramic. Standard PZT ceramics are limited to a maximum operating temperature of 150 °C. PZT ceramics must be protected from humidity or fluid contamination (like other electric materials and actuators).

Close contact between the PZT user and the manufacturer assures that the right actuator design is chosen for your application. PI has more than 30 years of experience in designing piezoelectric actuators and systems and offers a wide variety of options which can adapt PZTs to various environmental conditions.
