The Growing Piezoelectric Industry
The piezoelectric effect isn’t something most are familiar with despite its prevalence in technology. Ask someone how their printer works, and most would fail to provide an answer, and if they do, it probably won’t be about piezoelectric crystals. To be fair, it is an obscure topic, and its applications are currently limited due to technical concerns. Even so, piezoelectrics do see growth in technology today. From hearing aids to ultrasound to microscope focuses, there seems to be no limit to what piezoelectrics could do. We just haven’t thought of how.
Interactions between Manufacturers and Customers
Let’s say Company A manufactures piezoelectric components and Company B needs said components to make an ultrasound machine. Company B would approach Company A and buy a bunch of components, which it would then send to its factories to use. It’s possible that Company B’s ultrasound machine design wasn’t compatible with Company A’s piezoelectric components and needed an extra transformer or amplifier to make it work properly, which would slow down Company B’s production. That’s what a lot of manufacturer-customer interactions may look like, and there’s not much Company B can do about it. Other manufacturers in the piezoelectric industry are mostly just like Company A – they offer limited customization that can cause compatibility issues with designs of more complex products.
Why is Piezo Direct the Best Choice?
Piezo Direct isn’t like Company A. If Company B were our customer, they would tell us what the piezoelectric component needs to be able to do (in terms of input & output range or shape), and we would make it. It’s that easy: you just tell us what to make, and we’ll make it for you at a competitive price. No other company offers the kind of customization that we do, and if you’re in Company B’s predicament, then you need Piezo Direct.
