DuraAct Piezoelectric Transducers

Robust and Flexible Patch Transducers

DuraAct piezoelectric patch transducers are "Smart Materials" having both sensor and actuator characteristics. Therefore, the patch transducers can be used as sensors and actuators as well as to generate and store electrical charge. The patented laminated structure of piezo ceramic, electrodes and polymer exterior is electrically insulated and, at the same time, mechanically robust.

The piezo ceramic consists of one or several plates manufactured by pressing. Alternatively, multilayer piezo ceramics are integrated; they have a higher efficiency and require a considerably lower electrical voltage.

Customization

DuraAct piezoelectric transducers are produced in different shapes. Customized designs to match your application are also available. Whether special electronics or special geometries – on request, we will gladly offer you customized products.

Applications and Markets

  • Highly dynamic actuators
  • Active vibration damping
