Piezo Motion’s Miniature Rotary Motor Gets a Big Upgrade

DCS Piezo Motions Miniature Rotary Motor GEts a Big Upgrade 1 400x275

November 22, 2022

 

Piezo Motion recently announced an important update to its popular line of miniature rotary piezoelectric motors (the ‘RAS Series’).

The new addition to the RAS motor family (Model # RAS4P2) features almost twice the torque (4.5 mN.m) and fifty percent (50%) more speed (900 rpm) compared to the previous models while still maintaining the exceptional overall performance offered by the RAS series.

Piezo Motion’s signature rotary motor, built around a patented piezoelectric principle, overcomes the limitations of conventional high-precision DC stepper motors.

“Our latest addition to the RAS family provides exceptional resolution, fast response time, and an ultra-smooth motion; without the vibrational interference caused by traditional DC stepper motors,” said Dr. Mark Broderick, president of Piezo Motion. “Manufactured from lightweight reinforced engineering thermoplastics, and with a rotor diameter of just 11.2 mm, the new RAS combines high-performance in a lightweight design with exceptional energy-efficiency; characteristics that are essential for many medical device and high-tech applications.”

Piezo Motion’s multifaceted rotary and linear motors are built with technology that provides a stable, accurate motor designed specifically for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that require ultimate performance and quality; but without the burden of high cost.

Piezo Motion motors are used globally for a variety of applications. These include laboratory instruments, biomedicine, optics, semiconductors, nanotechnology, and industrial applications.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
