Langevin transducers are commonly used in a variety of applications, such as microfluidics, scalers, wire bonding, ultrasound imaging, non-destructive testing, and acoustic sensing. They have several advantages including high sensitivity, fast response time, and wide bandwidth.
PI provides virtual prototyping as part of their development process for piezoelectric transducers and piezo motion systems, enabling faster, more precise and cost-effective collaboration with customers before building sub-systems or complete solutions.
To achieve an automated and efficient workflow with ultrasound scanners, a customized acoustic transducer is essential. The Langevin transducers provided by PI offer modifiable parameters including:
- Power consumption
- transducer material
- Resonant frequency
PI is a global leader in piezo technology, precision motion control, nanopositioning stages and automation subsystems. Technologies include bulk and multilayer piezo transducers, hexapods, magnetic drives, air cushions, and piezo electronics The company was founded 5 decades ago and today employs over 1500 people in over 20 locations worldwide with manufacturing sites in the US, Europe, and Asia. PI’s customers are leaders in the high-tech industry and research institutions in fields such as photonics, life sciences, semiconductors and aerospace.
