PiezoClamping® - Prestress and charge meter for piezoceramics

For the assembly of ultrasonic transducers and converters with optimal prestress.

PiezoClamping® is a piece of novel equipment to standardizes the prestress on the piezoelectric ceramics, preventing damage in converters and Langevin-type power ultrasonic transducers. Unlike the tightening torque, prestress is a well-known value that depends only on the ceramic type and not on the dimensions and quantities of ceramics, type of bolt, thread finishing and lubrication.

PiezoClamping® overview.

PiezoClamping® is easy to use, accurate and immune to the variations undermining traditional methods of prestress control by torque or charge measurement using a voltmeter.

Simply connect the PiezoClamping, entry the ceramic parameters and tighten the transducer until the desired prestress is achieved. The tightening can be applied slowly and with pauses without affecting the result.
