Description: A 2-layer piezoelectric actuator produces curvature when one piezo layer expands while the other layer contracts. These transducers are often referred to as benders, bimorphs, or flexural elements. Bender motion on the order of hundreds to thousands of microns, and bender force from tens to hundreds of grams, is typical.

The composite center shim laminated between the two piezo layers produces higher motion and force but reduces mechanical strength. High performance elements are suitable for cryogenic use. High performance elements are X-poled for series operation.

Standard Sizes: Designated "-103", "-203", "-303" and "-503".
