PICMA® Piezo Linear Actuators

Multilayer Piezo Actuators with All-Ceramic Insulation

The PICMA® Stack piezo linear actuators from PI Ceramic feature linear displacements with low piezo voltages. Encapsulated versions for operation with splash water or oil are available.

The miniature actuators PICMA® Chip with a height of only 2 mm are also offered as round version with inner hole. These extremely compact piezo actuators feature maximum dynamics with high resonant frequencies. PICMA® Chip piezo actuators can be easily combined to stack actuators. 

Customization

PICMA® multilayer piezo actuators are produced in different shapes. Depending on the application, they can also be assembled with adapted ceramic or metal end pieces, additional coating, temperature sensors, etc. On request, we will gladly offer you customized products.
