Ultra-fine, defect-free PZT ceramic components
14 June 2015
Morgan Advanced Materials has announced that it now has the capability to manufacture defect-free lead zirconate titanate (PZT) ceramic products with a wall thickness as small as 50µm.
The products are suitable for high-precision applications, such as next-generation inkjet printer heads and high-frequency ultrasound systems.
The capability has been developed through precise modification of Morgan’s material processing to optimise micro-structural control, enabling enhanced machinability.
Processing improvements result in increased homogeneity and a narrow distribution of particle sizes. With careful control of sintering conditions, it is possible to achieve a reduced grain size and significant increase in densification.
Thanks to their piezoelectric properties, PZT materials are widely used across a range of applications, such as the production and detection of sound, generation of high voltages, and electronic frequency generation.
