Piezo Motion Acquires DTI, Announces New Line of Motors

Piezo Motion Corp has announced the acquisition of Discovery Technology International, Inc., an innovator of standing wave-type piezo technology for rotary and linear motion products. "With the acquisition, Piezo Motion released a full product line of precision energy-efficient piezo motors that now makes the technology affordable for a wide range of motion control applications, at scale, in an expanding number of industries," said a company spokesperson.

"Our affordable piezoelectric motors are disrupting the DC motor industry. For the first time, product manufacturers can have all of the advantages of a piezo motor at a comparable price to a precision DC motor," said Hassan Kotob, Chairman and CEO of Piezo Motion.

"Unlike the classic direct current (DC) or stepper motors, the versatile piezo rotary and linear motion motors contain very few parts, enabling economical manufacturing volume yielding a stable and reliable final result," said the spokesperson. "Piezo technology is inherently nonmagnetic, which enables motor designs for specialized applications where traditional DC motors cannot be used. Piezo motors are also immune from electromagnetic (EM) and radiofrequency (RF) interference and generate no emissions, which can aid original equipment manufacturer (OEM) product compliance and reduce or eliminate shielding costs."

Piezo Motion's newly released rotary motors, available with both open-loop and closed-loop control, are engineered using the latest reinforced thermoplastics to provide increased quality and performance for OEM applications. Piezo Motion's linear actuator design is configured with durable and lightweight materials. Energy efficient for motion applications, they consume zero power in hold position while still providing significant force.

The adaptability of the design of Piezo Motion's driver solutions allows it to accommodate the majority of third-party interfaces or by using a Python API or serial command set.

"Piezo Motion's vision is to take the high-performance piezoelectric motor technology-which has traditionally been very expensive-and make it available to engineers working in all industries. No longer is piezo relevant only to engineers working in the satellite industry and other specialized industries-we can now make it available to those working in the industrial, automotive or life sciences industries because it is within their grasp economically," explains Dr. Mark Broderick, President of Piezo Motion.
