Sometimes the perfect solution to time-honoured problems is hovering under our very noses. In the case of drones, this philosophy can be entirely literal. UAV technology is on the cutting edge of the consumer market - however, UAVs have greater potential locked within their status as a casual hobby. Commercial drones are growing in popularity, and their scope for allowing us an unbound perspective on the environments we cherish is widely recognised. Their potential as tools of the construction industry is only now coming to light as the full picture of this technologys influence has built up, piece by piece, under the dawn of the robotic age.
Tested to perform 100 billion cycles by NASA for the Mars mission, piezo actuators efficiently convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. If your application requires any combination of these parameters, you should be using piezo motion:
• Fast response
• High precision
• High force
• Long life
• Maintenance and lubricants free
• Compact dimensions
• Non-magnetic, UHV compatible
Piezo drives provide the best combination of stability, accuracy, responsiveness, and resolution. Brush up on piezo basics for precision motion, force generation, and nanopositioning applications.
