PI offers the largest selection of research- and industrial-reliability Piezoelectric Actuators, PZT Translators (linear actuators), Piezo NanoPositioning Systems and Piezo Tip/Tilt Mirrors (Active Optics) worldwide. We have more than 30 years experience in design and manufacture of piezo actuator products.

Piezoelectric Translators (PZTs) are solid state (ceramic) actuators that directly convert electrical energy into motion (mechanical energy). Advantages of PI's Piezoelectric PZT Actuators include:

  • Ceramic-Encapsulated for longer lifetime
  • Sub-nanometer resolution
  • Zero stiction/friction
  • Zero backlash
  • Very high stiffness (up to 2,000,000 N/mm for 20µm actuator)
  • No wear and tear
  • Fast response (sub-millisecond)
  • Widest range, highest quality of piezo actuators world wide (>10,000 different piezo configurations)
  • Low voltage (100 V) and high voltage (1000 V) versions
  • Optional integrated position feedback sensors for Closed-Loop operation and non-linearity compensation
  • Ultra high vacuum, low temperature, and high temperature options available
  • Wide selection of piezo electronics (amplifiers, position servo controllers, computer interfaces), and software
  • OEM and custom designs
