AIRCRAFT VALVES &
Piezoelectric motors can be used as a direct drive, without the need for gearing or an electrical break, making them ideal actuators for various valve types in aerospace and aircraft applications where space and weight limitations are extremely important. In addition the silent operation of a piezoelectric motor makes them perfect for use in environments that require low noise, such as aircraft cabin interiors.
Piezoelectric motors are extremely precise and accurate (e.g. capable of nanometer resolutions). This capability makes piezoelectric motors an ideal motion solution for satellite and robotic applications where accurate positioning of tools and sensors is critical.
Unmanned aerial systems demand precision and low weight. The low-weight design of DTI’s piezo motors, coupled with their high resolution and direct drive characteristic provides key advantage in these applications.
