Piezo Motors In Medical Therapy: Magnetic Resonance, Multi-leaf Collimator

POSTED 06/07/2019

Piezo ceramic motors do neither create nor are they susceptible to strong magnetic fields. Ideal for medical and high-energy physics applications. Multi-leaf collimators are used in tumor treatment to reduce side effects of the radiation beam to healthy tissue. More leaves means higher precision of the contour and higher protection. Piezoelectric linear motors are non-magnetic, compact, fast and provide high forces.
