Piezo Motion is a leader in piezo motor technology with a multi-million dollar investment in research and development of affordable piezoelectric motors to meet, and exceed, the needs of today’s global markets. The company is committed to the development of innovative piezoelectric technology and motion products that enhance their functionality in a multitude of applications including medical scanning, medical positioning systems and robotic surgery.
To minimize tissue trauma robotic surgery requires very precise movements coupled with great stability. Piezoelectric motors are uniquely suited for such applications. Firstly, they have nanometer level resolution, secondly the self-holding torque (or force) is extremely high often eliminating the need for any break/holding mechanism. At the end effector of the robot compactness is normally critical, Piezo Motion’s miniature rotary piezo motor and linear piezo motor provide a range of useful applications.
