PI’s PICMAWalk Piezo Linear Motor

POSTED 05/22/2017

PI’s PICMAWalk piezo linear motor uses 8 PICMA® piezo actuators arranged in a V-shape similar to a classical V8 engine to achieve high push/pull and holding forces along with nanometer precision. The space-tested PICMA® actuators are highly reliable, providing 60N (13lbs) holding force and 50N (11 lbs) push/pull force. The maximum velocity is 15mm/sec (0.6 inch/sec). Loads up to 5kg (11lbs) can be positioned with nanometer precision. Open and closed loop available.
