・Features of the MechaTransRK-Series
The MechaTransRK-Series is a piezoelectric actuator that has a higher rigidity/stiffness and higher resonance frequency compare to the MechaTransRDD-Series or the MechaTransRD-Series. Therefore the MechaTransRK-Series has a shorter rise time. The MechaTransRK-Series consists of a stroke magnification / amplification structure and multilayer stacked piezoelectric actuators. With the stroke magnification structure, the stroke is magnified to overcome the limitation of the multilayer stacked piezoelectric actuator. However, the magnifiation / amplification ratio is smaller than the MechaTransRDD-Series or the MechaTransRD-Series. Like the MechaTransRDD-Series or the MechaTransRD-Series, the MechaTransRK-Series is designed flat and compact in size, therefore the efficiency of the space utilization is high. The output stroke is converted to 90 degree in direction compare to the original output stroke of the multilayer stacked piezoelectric actuator. When a voltage is applied to the MechaTransRK-Series, it shrinks as shown in Fig. 2.

The operating principle of the MechaTransRK-Series
Mechanical tapped holes are fabricated at both sides of the MechaTransRK-Series. Lead wires of red and black(white) are attached at the piezoelectric actuators. Fig. 1 shows an example of the connection between the driver and the piezoelectric actuators. A resistance may be needed in between depend on the driving conditions. When a voltage is applied to the piezoelectric actuators, the MechaTransRK-Series shrinks as shown in Fig. 2.
