Multilayer Piezo Actuators

 PiezoImage

Piezo actuators are today the core component in modern, energy-efficient fuel injection systems. They improve engine performance as well as reduce emissions and save fuel.

However, fast response and unrivalled precision are making piezo actuators likewise attractive for a number of further mechatronic tasks.

EPCOS is a leading supplier of customer-specific multilayer piezo actuator solutions. With many years of experience supplying the automotive industries at highest quality levels, EPCOS provides solutions in silver/palladium as well as copper technology.
