In recent years, remarkable developments have taken place in electromechanical system research. Among them, piezoelectric ceramics and their devices have drawn huge attention. Actuators utilizing piezoelectricity as driving elements have found a wide spectrum of applications. Piezoelectric bimorph, using two piezoelectric plates to produce bending displacement, is one of the most widely applied actuator designs. This type of actuator can provide large displacement, and can be applied in many areas such as valves, positioners and benders.
