CTS Introduces Ultra-Thin Piezoelectric Wafers
Elkhart, IN…CTS Corporation (NYSE: CTS), a global leader in the design and manufacture of ceramic piezoelectric (PZT) materials, wafers and components, today announced the release of its new Ultra-Thin PZT Wafers for the inkjet printer industry.
The Ultra-Thin PZT Wafers require lower drive voltage for actuation, and the thinner dimension allows for easier integration with silicon wafer technology. These advantages give manufacturers similar voltage requirements to other components and allows for production processes that utilize and benefit from silicon wafer processing technology.
|The new wafers are available in any CTS material formulation and can be provided as a bare element or electroded with sputtered nickel, tin, nichrome or gold. They are available in various thicknesses down to 60 microns. CTS can also produce a wide range of surface finishes compatible with next-level assembly.|
