Piezoceramics & Piezo Technology

Piezoceramics are used for a wide range of electromechanical transducers in a broad frequency range. In sensors, they enable the conversion of forces, pressures and accelerations into electrical signals. In sound and ultrasonic transducers, on the other hand, they can convert electrical voltages into vibrations or deformations. The basis for this is the direct or inverse piezoelectric effect. Piezoceramics are used in numerous applications and markets - from automotive engineering and industry to medical devices.

Ultrasonic Transducers & Piezoceramic Sensors

In automotive engineering, sensor systems assure the safety of occupants and provide intelligent engine control capabilities.

In ultrasonic applications, piezoceramic components generate high-power ultrasonic waves for ultrasonic cleaning, drilling and welding and for stimulating of chemical processes. On the other hand, piezoceramics are found in many signal and information processing solutions in the form of ultrasonic receivers and transmitters. They also play a key role in advanced sonar locating and ranging, non-destructive material testing, and medical diagnostic equipment.

The operation of piezoceramic actuators relies on the ability of piezo elements to produce controlled deformation in the micrometer range. This characteristic enables new applications for electromechanical transducers as drivers in hydraulic and pneumatic valves, positioning systems, micromanipulators, and proportioning systems for liquid and gaseous media.
