PI Rest-Programable Piezo Shim

What's the difference between a Piezo Actuator and Programable Piezo Shim?

New Tools for Design Engineers of Optics and Precision Mechanical Systems Piezo stack actuators have been used in applications such as photonics alignment, positioning, force generation, and fast valve actuation for several decades. They provide high dynamics, but can also be used for quasi-static applications due to their high-stiffness and stability.
