Piezo Actuators from PI Ceramic
This video shows the advanced piezo actuators from Physik Instrumente (PI). These instruments can convert electrical energy directly into mechanical energy and vice versa. Their motion is based on crystalline displacements, so there is neither wear nor friction.
PI Ceramic (PIC) has been developing and making piezo ceramic materials and components for standard and OEM solutions: piezo components, actuators, ultrasonic transducers, and system solutions. One of many inventions of PIC, the PICMA® multilayer actuator technology received an award for its reliability. PIC, a subsidiary of PI, is situated in the city of Lederhose, Thuringia, Germany.
