Piezo Tube Actuators (Cylinders)
Piezo tubes can be designed as either an actuator or a transducer. Polarized radially with negative electrodes on the interior and positive electrodes on the exterior, the piezo tube will contract radially and axially as soon as a voltage is applied. As an actuator, piezo tubes are commonly used in inkjet printers, micropumps, and scanning probe microscopes due to their precise nature. For sensory applications, piezo tube transducers are commonly used in hydrophones and sonar technology.
