Fluidic Applications

Piezoelectric micro-pumps, valves and switches enable more precise fluid control

Piezo-based micro pumps move microliter and nanoliter volumes of fluid with extremely precise control. Today, most micro pumps employ flexing diaphragms and peristaltic motion, which creates pulses of uneven pressure and a flow precision that is dependent on the backpressure.

A micro pump design based SQUIGGLE on motors overcomes these limitations. New Scale's reference design uses the SQUIGGLE motor's precise linear motion to directly move a reciprocating piston or bellows. The NSE-5310 position sensor provides high-resolution control of the fluid. This positive displacement pump design enables higher precision, pressure and flow in a package that is one tenth the size of existing micro pumps. Read the technical paper (PDF).
