MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Johnson Matthey Piezoproducts has introduced its Piezo Technology at the 2013 MD&M Minneapolis Tradeshow as an ideal solution to high-tech device movement requirements. “Piezoceramic changes shape (becoming either shorter or wider) when electric voltage is applied to it,” explains Christian Laube, Key Account Manager at Johnson Matthey. For more than forty years, Piezoproducts has harnessed the power of the Piezo Effect to provide solutions for actuator and sensor applications using Piezoceramics and Piezo benders. Unlike other commonly known solutions, Piezo Technology is fast, precise, silent and heat-free in its operation.”
“Piezoceramic changes shape (becoming either shorter or wider) when electric voltage is applied to it”
Notable advantages of Piezoceramics include low energy consumption, lack of heat and electromagnetic noise, silent operation, rapid positioning, high frequency, long-term durability and reliability. Piezoceramics are highly desirable in medical, aerospace and high-tech industrial automation applications where precision, reliability and lack of heat are essential. Featuring a lifetime of more than one billion switching cycles, Piezo benders are easily modifiable to suit the application. Additionally, with its compact size, Piezoceramic lends itself well to device miniaturization.
