The chip actuators complete the series of miniature piezo actuators, available in the sizes 2 mm x 2 mm x 2 mm, 3 mm x 3 mm x 2 mm and 5 mm x 5 mm x 2 mm. These actuators are manufactured with multilayer technology and have an all-ceramic encapsulation. 100 mm PTFE-insulated wire leads are already mounted to the actuator.
The miniature piezo actuators feature settling times of only a few microseconds and a resolution in the sub-nanometer range. Accordingly, they are optimally suited for dynamic applications and for the use in micro-dosing, life science, laser tuning and adaptive optics.
On request, PICMA® Chip actuators can be manufactured with ceramic-insulated inner hole or with precision-ground ceramic end plates.
