Paper Abstract

Applications of piezoelectric actuators have increased dramatically during the past decade, focusing mainly on stack-type actuators. Some applications would, however, benefit from bending actuators with improved performance, particularly within the valve industry. Noliac engineers have developed and patented a novel design of multilayer bender actuators which doubles the performance of bending actuators. The design is based on an innovative electrode structure. Theoretical and experimental results based on several different actuator designs are presented. As a result, more compact actuators can be designed, thereby reducing the application volume and costs.
