In automotive engineering, piezosensors are used for occupant safety and intelligent engine control solutions. As gas igniting devices in heaters and lighters, piezoceramic components have become well known, high volume product. In ultrasonic systems, piezoceramic devices generate powerful ultrasonic waves used for cleaning, drilling and welding, as well as to stimulate chemical processes. They act as transmitters and receivers in many signal and information processing systems. Other important applications of piezoceramic devices include ultrasonic locating and distance measuring systems, nondestructive materials testing and medical diagnostic equipment.
The function of piezoceramic actuators is based on the deformation in the micrometer range. This behavior opens new applications for electromechanical transducers in hydraulic and pneumatic valves, positioning systems, micromanipulators, and flowmeter systems for liquid and gaseous media.
Given this great diversity of applications, users are generally advised to work closely with CeramTec's experts from the product development stage. An experienced staff is available to answer your questions. In dialogue with the customer, we can help to specify application conditions, requirement criteria and design prerequisites, and to develop high quality cost-effective solutions.
