Piezo Transducers Brochure for Medical Applications

April 2012, Auburn, MA, – Piezo specialist PI (Physik Instrumente) has published a new brochure on medical applications of piezo ceramic actuators, transducers and motion components. The “Piezo Drive Solutions for Medical Engineering” entitled PDF document is available for download at: http://www.pi-medical.net/Piezo_Motion_for_Medical.htm

Piezo Transducers Brochure for Medical Applications

Piezo transducers and piezo motors can solve many problems encountered by traditional motors and motion components. They are more compact, provide higher force output and since they neither create electromagnetic interference, nor are they influenced by it, eliminating the need for magnetic shielding. This feature is particularly important for motors used within strong magnetic fields, such as those seen in MRI equipment.

Life-sciences and equipment engineered for medical applications have a variety of different requirements for motion control, spanning a spectrum from complex high-precision positioning systems to reliable, low-cost, and compact drive components with ultra-low power consumption. Since progress goes hand in hand with continuous miniaturization and demand for higher speed and throughput, piezoceramic transducers and mechanisms can satisfy many of these requirements. Originally developed for sonar applications and nanometer-precision motion control , piezoelectric transducers principles are highly adaptable to new configurations and applications.

Different from traditional motors
Piezo transducers / piezo mechanic devices have several advantages over classical motion control components:
* Sterile / high bake-out temperatures
* No lubricants required
* Non-magnetic principle (MRI compatible)
* Vacuum compatible
* Smaller, higher force and faster response
* Direct linear motion w/o conversion losses

Application Examples
* Piezo transducers for generation of homogenous aerosols
* Piezo motors for uniform force while pipetting
* Piezo scanners for precision in visualization and microscopy
* Piezo transducers for reliable flow measurement and bubble detection
* Piezo disks for compact and high performance micro-pumps
* Piezo flexure actuators for precision dynamic nano-dispensers
* Non-magnetic piezo motors for mri
* Piezo ceramics for pumps, nebulizers and atomizers
