MechaTrans - Mechanical Transformers
Mechano Transformer's MechaTrans products incorporate multilayer piezoelectric actuators for the control of motion using magnification-demagnification
Compared to conventional piezoelectric actuators, they are able to achieve increased displacement while maintaining precise positioning and speed of movement.

Mechano Transformer Corporation has developed displacement enlargement mechanisms using a unique lever principle. The enlarged displacement achieves one hundred times that of the piezoelectric device itself and has the following advantages:
- Capable of movement in less than 1 ms
- Can be mounted with spacing pitch of less than 2mm
- Durability of over 1 billion cycles
- Energy savings due to high effciency energy conversion
- Energy consumption in a holding position is very low.
- Capable of accurate repeatability and precise positioning
