Dosing Tiniest Fluid Volumes Quickly and Precisely with the Help of Piezo Technology

Today, the ultrafast and precise dosing of tiniest fluid volumes is key to many automated industrial applications, e.g. in electronics production when assembling components.

Industrial dosing procedures are very diverse, but they all have one thing in common: The high requirements for accuracy. These requirements must be met independently of environmental influences.

In the manufacture of microchips, industrial precision technology plays an essential role – soldering pastes must be dispensed ultrafast on the smallest electrical chips, which means fine tuning and the highest precision.

For example, in digital printing and inkjet procedures, ink (or another material) is applied ultrafast and precisely without contact onto the material being printed. In both applications, tiniest fluid volumes up to the picoliter range must be dispensed accurately.

Piezo elements with their compact size, speed, and their low level of energy consumption are suitable for reliably move and dose small liquid volumes in the range of a few hundred milliliters up to a few picoliters.

Piezo-driven dispensing systems can generate several thousand pico- to microliter droplets per second and with that reach a high throughput, which is becoming increasingly important due to the pressure of competitiveness.

The demand for sophisticated piezoceramic products in industrial precision dispensing is steadily increasing.

With its longstanding experience and the technical know-how in piezo technology, PI can develop and produce these piezo ceramics – entirely according to the wishes of the customers and the respective industrial application.

Ultrafast Dispensing of Adhesives and Soldering Pastes
High-precision dispensing is used in automated industrial production lines, for example, in the manufacturing of electronic components by printing contacts on circuit boards, microchips, or adhesive dots. For this purpose, highly viscous materials such as adhesives or soldering pastes are dosed ultrafast as finest droplets. The piezo actuators used have extremely fast response times in the microseconds range and frequencies up to a few Kilohertz.

High-Performance Printing Using the Inkjet Process
Printing technology has long evolved past the boundaries of paper printing. There are no limits to the choice of printing material: Paper, plastic, ceramic, or metal. Especially in dynamic printed image generation such as digital printing, large areas can be continuously printed with the highest resolution in the shortest time. The piezo actuators used for this purpose work with ultrafast response times and high frequency.

Enabling 3D Printing with Different Materials
Additive manufacturing with 3D printing methods opens up completely new possibilities for manufacturing complex components: Individualized prototypes or customized products can be very quickly produced on the basis of CAD data. The most complex geometrical shapes are produced this way, and can even be printed with changing materials and material properties. The piezo actuators used in this process work with the fastest response times and above all with high force.
