Piezo Direct’s multilayer piezo actuators are constructed with up to hundreds of inner electrodes and thin ceramic layers, co-fired to form a monolithic ceramic with maximum height of a single device up to 36mm. The maximum height of these devices can be up to 100mm. Multilayer Piezo Actuators feature a longitudinal deformation when a voltage is applied. In most cases displacement can reach up to 0.15% of the total product length within a millisecond, while exerting a high force.

Multilayer piezo actuators are often used as liner electromechanical drivers or motors. They act mainly like an expanding element generating a compressive force. The complete motion cycle is nearly proportional to a voltage signal input from DC, up to high frequencies.
