>> Brochure: Piezo Motors & Actuators in Medical Design

The new, patented, P-652-series PILine® ultrasonic motor linear slides are ideal for OEM applications where space is limited and masses are small. The drive design was optimized for moving small objects such as fibers, optomechanical components, micromechanics or MEMS fast and precisely.
The P-652 may replace classical drive elements like rotary motor/leadscrew assemblies or other linear motors in a micro-system. The basic advantages PILine® piezo linear motors offer compared to classical drives are

  • Non magnetic
  • High velocity
  • Compact size
  • Self-locking at rest without heat dissipation
The P-652 linear piezo motors have the simplest possible design, comprising an ultrasonic piezoelectric resonator and two lateral sliders pressed against it by a spring doubling as sled. The load to be moved is mounted directly on the sled, and moved by a force of up to 110 mN. The P-652 requires only these 4 parts, unlike conventional electric motors. Highly integrated electronics are available for 3 V control.

>> Ultrasonic Linear Motor Introduction

  • Cost-Effective, High-Volume-Production Drive
  • Piezo Micro-Motor: 9.0 x 6.5 x 2.4 mm³
  • Travel Range 3.2 mm
  • Velocity to 80 mm/s
  • Self-Locking

The integration of P-652 is simple because the moving sliders and the piezoceramic motor are already delivered as a unit. Mechanical and electrical integration must be assured by the system the P-652 operates in.

Due to their ceramic, non magnetic nature, piezo motors are also excellent for medical design applications.
