VALVES

Motorized valves are used throughout many of the largest industries such as medical devices, industrial and lab analysis equipment, food and drug, semiconductor, as well as aerospace and automotive. The vast majority of motorized valves rely on conventional EM motors, which can be bulky, slow responding and inefficient.

Piezo Motion has collaborated with a range of customers from different industries to develop customized motorized valve solutions based on Piezo Motion’s piezoelectric technology. The result has been a range of unique valves which have been shown to provide a superior slim-line and efficient design compared to conventional valves used in many applications. Furthermore, the Piezo Motion piezoelectric valves react faster and are more precise, while at the same time they consume zero energy in the hold position (for a list of advantages see table).
