New high-speed actuators for micro and nano dispensing applications

Global leader in piezo technology and motion control PI has released a series of high-speed actuators for micro- and nano-dispensing applications. Both standard and custom-designed actuators are available. All actuators are based on PI’s in-house manufactured PICMA piezoceramic drives.

These drives are extremely reliable, according to the company, and underwent 100 billion cycles during life cycle testing by NASA before being employed on the recent Mars Mission.

PI’s dispensing actuators are available as bare piezo stacks and in highly customised forms with motion amplifiers and integrated sensors. Standard stacks provide a travel range of 30µm, and motion-amplified actuators can reach hundreds of microns while still providing sub-millisecond responsiveness.
