MORGAN ADVANCED MATERIALS: Piezoelectric Ceramic Blocks

December 10, 2013

A new range of large piezoelectric (PZT) ceramic blocks is now available, specifically for use in the defense and commercial sonar markets. Using an innovative new process, this company can now press, fire, and machine blocks and other shapes of components up to a thickness of 45 mm, reportedly resulting in the production of considerably larger components than those previously manufactured at the plant. The larger blocks can also offer a much lower thickness frequency output than their smaller counterparts, resulting in enhanced imagery and range for sonar at lower depths for 2-2 and 1-3 composite applications.

Manufactured in a wide range of sizes and frequencies to suit customer requirements, the new range is available in machined thicknesses up to 40mm in PZT Navy I and Navy III types, and up to 45 mm in PZT Navy II, Navy V and Navy VI types. Larger sizes are available on request, while thickness and frequency variations can also be tailored in order to meet specific requirements.
