Making the Switch to a Piezoelectric Rotary System

by Sylvia Miller

Many industrial processes require the use of rotary motion in order to manufacture individual parts. Finding ways to make your rotary motion more reliable can be critical when it comes to improving the function and design of your finished products. The converse piezoelectric effect generates acoustic or ultrasonic vibrations in order to create the rotary motion you are looking for.

Here are three reasons why making the switch to a piezoelectric system could be beneficial in updating the technology used to create your goods in the future.

1. Piezoelectric systems feature digital controls.

Unlike manual rotary systems, when you make the choice to rely on piezoelectric system you have the added benefit of access to digital controls. You can enter in your rotary parameters, then leave the system to create this circular motion without intervention from your employees.

Eliminating the manual-control element from your rotary processes can help reduce errors and make your manufacturing process more efficient and reliable.

2. Piezoelectric systems offer frictionless flexure.

When it comes to using rotary action to create various parts in your manufacturing plant, any friction that is created during a rotation could result in abnormalities in the finished produce.

Because piezoelectric systems rely on vibrations to create a rotary motion, there is little risk of friction occurring during turning. This feature allows for greater consistency in the creation of your company's products, which will result in increased performance and sales in the future.

3. Piezoelectric systems provide capacitive feedback.

Vibrations moving through the piezoelectric system create a rotary motion without requiring the system to come into contact with the material being worked. This means that there is a reduced risk of contamination and that the piezoelectric system can offer capacitive (or hands-off) feedback.

An employee can monitor this feedback to determine the quality and consistency of a rotary movement without ever needing to come into direct contact with the material being worked. Having the ability to capture capacitive feedback will allow your company to produce quality parts that can improve the function and durability of your finished product before it ends up in the hands of a consumer.

Understanding the benefits that piezoelectric systems can offer when it comes to your company's rotary manufacturing will help you see why transitioning to this type of system could be good for business. You will be able to produce precision products that are free from manufacturing flaws or contamination.
