PICA Piezoelectric Stack Actuators

Stack, Power and Thru

PICA piezoelectric linear actuators in stacked design are very reliable and feature a large specific displacement. The operating voltage is 1000 V.

  • PICA Stack actuators provide high forces.
  • PICA Thru feature an inner hole, for applying a pretension or as clear aperture in optical applications.
  • PICA Power piezo actuators are made of a piezo material that allows for a higher operating temperature and thus higher dynamics.

Customization

PICA piezoelectric linear actuators are produced in a wide range of 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 gladly offer you customized products.

Applications and Markets

  • Laser technology and laser beam control
  • High-load precision positioning
  • Precision mechanics and precision machining
  • Switching applications
  • Active vibration damping
