Non-Sensitive Piezo Drives from PI
This video shows PI’s non-sensitive piezo drives specifically developed for magnetic resonance therapy. Piezo drives are the only drives which are not affected by strong magnetic fields, and also they do not create magnetic fields which can become a source of interference.
Magnetic resonance tomography is a field of application in medical technology where images are recorded without using optical techniques. The piezo drives, which move the sensing probes to match the samples, coils, or diaphragms, must be able to operate in powerful magnetic fields of up to several tesla.
As the piezo drives can also operate in a vacuum and at very low temperatures, they can be placed directly inside the tomograph without further ado.
