Increased Force: PICMA Chip Actuator with Larger Dimensions

PICMA Chip from PI Ceramic

PI Ceramic now manufactures PICMA® chip actuators with the dimensions 10mm × 10mm × 2mm. These ultra-compact piezo actuators attain forces of up to 2,000N with a displacement of 2.2µm.

The chip actuators complete the series of miniature piezo actuators, available in the sizes 2mm x 2mm x 2mm, 3mm x 3mm x 2mm and 5mm x 5mm x 2mm. These actuators are manufactured with multilayer technology and have an all-ceramic encapsulation. 100mm PTFE-insulated wire leads are already mounted to the actuator.

The miniature piezo actuators feature settling times of only a few mi-croseconds and a resolution in the sub-nanometer range. Accordingly, they are optimally suited for dynamic applications and for the use in micro-dosing, life science, laser tuning and adaptive optics.

On request, PICMA Chip actuators can be manufactured with ceramic-insulated inner hole or with precision-ground ceramic end plates.
