A new double tilt mechanism DTT35 XS by Cedrat Technologies

DTT35 XS double tilt mechanism from Cedrat Technologies

A new double tilt mechanism so called DTT 35 XS has been developed by CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES with the CNES support considering different space applications. A first application of this mechanism was found in the frame of PHARAO (the first space cold atomic clock, to be operated on board of the ISS) but other applications can be found, such SILEX inter-link satellite communication.

Electrophysiology: Piezos Enable Faster Solution Switching


Electrophysiological studies require fast motions of a double-bore (theta-glass) pipette across cell membranes. With a cell held in a patch clamp and monitored electrical-ly, one bore of the pipette flows a buffer solution, while the other carries a drug or other chemical. By quickly sweeping the pipette so one bore or the other suffuses the cell, its electrophysiological response can be correlated to the chemical environment.

Self-locking, Non-Magnetic and Easy to Integrate: Piezo-Based Linear Drive for Automation Technology


Linear direct drives have advantages over rotating electric motors for rectilinear motions in automation technology because the latter always have to use a spindle to convert the driving force into translational motion. An often undesirable aspect of conventional linear motors is that they are not self-locking and thus require holding currents which are associated with heat dissipation, high energy consumption and “positional jitter”. Piezo-based linear drives offer a solution here.
