Modern Multi-Layer Technique
Piezo Electric Actuators
Stack type actuators from PiezosystemJena are based on multilayer ceramics. A special epoxy sealing guaranties the most flexible, longest lifetime protection available on the market. This technique has been proven in the field by our extensive experience for many years. Depending on the size of the ceramic stacks, these actuators can move masses in the kNs. The resolution is only limited by the signal noise. The ability to generate a large force and be subjected to high mass loads with high resolutions makes our actuators particularly useful for machine tools and dynamic scanning systems.
Piezojena's actuators have been used successfully in applications in the fields of nano-positioning, metrology, rapid valve actuation, mirror moving and tilting, fiber stretching, generating oscillations, and of course vibration damping. As an option, these actuators are all available with a strain gauge feed back sensor. There is also a vacuum or cryogenic option as well.
