Item # P-604.300, P-604 Compact PiezoMove Linear Actuators

Inexpensive, with 300 µm Travel Range

Light and compact: 4 g and <13 mm × 20 mm surface
Optimized design for manufacturing in large quantities
Customer-specific adaptations can be provided
Outstanding lifetime due to PICMA® piezo actuators
Ideal for OEM applications in optics, medical technology, biotechnology, and microfluidics

High guiding accuracy due to zero-play flexure guides
Flexure guides are free of maintenance, friction, and wear, and do not require lubrication. Their stiffness allows high load capacity and they are insensitive to shock and vibration. They are 100 % vacuum compatible and work in a wide temperature range.

Outstanding lifetime thanks to PICMA® piezo actuators
The patented PICMA® piezo actuators are all-ceramic insulated. This protects them against humidity and failure resulting from an increase in leakage current. PICMA® actuators offer an up to ten times longer lifetime than conventional polymer-insulated actuators. 100 billion cycles without a single failure are proven.

Fields of Application

  • Nanopositioning
  • High-speed switching
  • Patch clamp
  • Microdispensing
  • Adaptive systems technology / automation
  • Photonics / integrated optics
  • Biotechnology


The resolution of the system is only limited by the noise of the amplifier and measuring technology because PI piezo actuators are free of friction.

All specifications based on room temperature (22 ºC ±3 ºC).
