Piezoelectric Meter

Introducing our new Piezoelectric Meter for polymer sheet

Due for launch in 2021, we have developed a new measurement tool for quality assurance evaluation of the performance of novel piezoelectric polymers – films that are being considered for next generation 3D touch sensitive screens and beyond.

Our new Piezoelectric Meter incorporates an integral load cell, displacement transducer and charge amplifier, utilizing lock-in amplification to create a very sensitive measurement device that provides a fast and accurate determination of the piezoelectric properties of electroded PVDF film.

The device will support materials innovation by delivering new, cost effective, highly accurate QA measurement probes that can be integrated in line with large scale production processes, or offline for R&D purposes.

Who will benefit from this technology?

From global manufacturers of piezoelectric films and global innovators in thin/flexible wearables, energy harvesting, smart actuation, touch sensing screens, hydrophone and medical ultrasound to the R&D community, a rapid and accurate evaluation piezoelectric polymers functional properties is required.

This tool helps companies bring to market new products that integrate functional polymer films into touch screen and energy harvesting applications, via the provision of new quality assurance tools which themselves maybe integrated into larger scale production lines, shortening the time taken between materials science & prototype development.

The benefits

  • Enhanced Quality Control

  • Drastic reduction in time to bring to market touch screen innovations

  • Significant and immediate cost saving for typical materials selection run

  • Supporting UK’s materials innovation and development strategy

  • Technology to support development of future touch sensitive displays

  • Reduction in manufacturing time and energy consumption
