Ceramics component parts

PI Ceramic Pioneering Technology

A ceramic is an inorganic, non-metallic, solid material comprising metal, non-metal or metalloid atoms primarily held in ionic and covalent bonds.

Ceramic component parts in motion control components and systems offer superior performance with respect to start-up, heat resistance and wear vs steel or other materials. Ceramic components will not interfere with the magnetic field of a medical device.


Ceramics are used in industries such as:

  • Aerospace
  • Industrial automation
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Medical service including research
  • Semiconductor manufacturing


Examples of ceramic products used to improve performance in motion control devices and systems are:

  • Ceramic encapsulated piezo actuator
  • Ceramic spindles
  • Ceramic transducer tubes
  • Electro-ceramic drive systems
  • Electro-ceramic spheres
  • Piezo ceramic materials
  • Piezo ceramic motors
  • Positioning feedback sensors
