P-653 PILine® Miniature Piezo Linear Motor / Slide for High Volume Applications

>> Introduction to Ultrasonic Motors
>> Technical Paper: Development of a Miniature Piezo Motor

  • True Linear Motor Slide / No Rotary Conversion Losses
  • Extremely Fast: Velocity up to 200 mm/s
  • Travel Range 2 mm,
  • Cost-Effective OEM Drive for High Quantity-Applications
  • Preassembled and Mounted on a PCB Board
  • Very Compact: Piezomotor Drive is Only 8 mm Long
  • Fast Response: Full Stroke in <50 ms
  • Force Generation to 0.15 N
  • Self Locking at Rest
  • Both Miniature Linear Actuator & Miniature Translation Stage (self guided slide)

P-653 PILine® OEM piezo-motor slides are ideal for OEM applications where space is at a premium. These tiny linear positioners can be used to replace classical drive elements like miniaturized motor/spindle systems or other linear motors, which P-653 outclasses with its speed of up to 200 mm/s. PILine® piezo motor linear slide stages offer a number of advantages over classical motor drives:

  • Higher velocities
  • Smaller design
  • High push/pull and holding forces relative to the drive size

Integration of the P-653 motorized piezostage in an application is simple because the moving slider and the piezo actuator are delivered assembled as a unit mounted on a PCB board, incorporating the low voltage drive electronics.

Due to their sterile, non-magnetic, ceramic nature, piezo motor miniature linear actuators work well in medical design applications.
