Effective, extremely precise and very small replacement engines are the traditional technology and allows for the motorization where this has previously not been possible. Engine performance includes nanometerprecis movement (1 nanometer = 1 millionth of a millimeter) and very high force in a miniatyriserat format. The engines work in a vacuum and can be made completely non-magnetic, which also opens up completely new opportunities. In Uppsala, PiezoMotor its own facility for högvolymtillverkning, research and development and corporate headquarters.
