Precision in the smallest dimensions
The outside diameter is 1.544 mm, with tolerances of ±0.001 mm
1.544 × 2.23 mm
An ingenious assembly made up of four components and three materials
with a nickel content of 8% and a grain size in the submicron range
PZT ceramic – lead zirconate titanate material with piezoelectric effect (mechanical pressure produces an electrical voltage on the element)
Easily machinable ceramic with high electrical insulating property
The probe allows images to be created of the inside of the arteries in order to localize vessel constrictions.
The component has
64 precisely ground slots
They have an impressively small slot width of 0.025 mm
The probe is an exceptional example of how we overcome challenges in the smallest dimensions.
