The Most Innovative Piezomotors in the Industry

DCS Electromate Piezoelectric Motors 1 400

December 6, 2021

Piezo Motion’s novel series of linear and rotary piezoelectric motors represent a quantum leap in design construction of compact ultra-precision, high-performance motor technologies. Manufactured from modern lightweight reinforced engineering thermoplastics, the new range of piezoelectric motors combine superior nanometer precision with fast response at a very economical cost.

Extremely energy efficient, Piezo Motion’s motors consume zero power in hold position while still providing significant force/torque. Available in a variety of configurations including both open-loop control (non-feedback control) and closed-loop control (feedback control) systems, these motors have extremely low voltage compliance (5 to 12 Vdc) and minimal energy demands, enabling miniaturization of associated drive electronics and cost-effective pricing.

Developed and manufactured by Piezo Motion, with custom options available upon request, this new series of rotary and linear motors are rapidly finding use in a growing number of motion control applications.

Linear Motors Features:

Rapid Response Time

At 10 to 30 microseconds for a typical motion response time, the piezomotor is >100X faster than a electromagnetic motor. 

Ultra High Resolution Steps

With <50 nm step resolution the linear piezomotor is capable of an incredible 20,000 steps per mm of travel.

Energy Efficient

With no command signal the piezomotor will hold position with zero power and a force >/= the maximum driving force.

Lightweight

Eliminating copper windings, magnets and ferrous laminations, enables a lightweight construction using engineering polymers.

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.
