Piezo-Kinetics Expands Manufacturing
Piezo-Kinetics Inc. recently announced a major expansion of its powder processing and precious metal manufacturing at the Bellefonte, Pa., plant, reportedly enabling the company to reduce lead times and improve productivity. The company’s 13,000-sq-ft expansion for powder processing increases the facility’s total manufacturing area to 33,000 sq ft and raises powder production capacity from 2,000 lb/month to 20,000 lb/month. The new capacity enables the company to eliminate outsourcing arrangements and become vertically integrated for lead zirconium titanate and lead metaniobate, key raw materials for the production of piezoelectric ceramics, according to Todd Baney, sales engineer for Piezo-Kinetics.
