Piezo Motors Power MRI Robot

Piezo Motors Power MRI Robot

Sponsored by MICROMO

Combining magnetic field immunity with high precision motion over inches of travel, piezo “leg” motors walk the line. Building a robot that can operate within the high magnetic fields generated by an MRI unit was not easy, but with sophisticated controls engineering and piezoelectric positioners from MICROMO, the WPI team has built a system that promises to revolutionize the treatment possibilities of MRI.
