Custom Piezo Components
Piezo actuators utilize the inverse piezoelectric effect to convert an electrical signal into mechanical energy capable of generating displacement. This energy conversion in piezo actuators is used in a wide variety of applications and industries due to their precise control and efficiency. There are several types of piezo actuators, including multilayer stack actuators, piezo strip actuators, piezo disc actuators, and piezo tube actuators.

Piezoelectric sensors utilize the piezoelectric effect to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. Piezoelectric sensors are able to detect mechanical changes in the environment and translate them to a proportional electrical output. These piezo components are mostly used in measuring pressure, vibrations, acceleration, strain, force, and movement. Piezoelectric sensors can be found in automotive, musical, medical, aerospace, industrial, and commercial applications. Learn how Piezo Direct can help you with your custom piezo sensor.
Piezoelectric transducers can convert any form of pressure or mechanical stress into electrical energy and also translate that electrical signal into linear displacement. In other words, a piezoelectric transducer can be defined as a combination of a piezoelectric sensor and a piezo actuator. This combined effect found in piezoelectric transducers is widely used across industrial, automotive, aerospace, commercial, and medical industries for many applications where quick and precise measurements and adjustments are needed.
