If you have ever sought an alternative to power-hungry solenoid-operated interlocks, or wished there was a secure and hassle-free way to avoid using keyed locks and interlocks, then have a look at the article Piezo technology to bring benefits to machine builders.

Having interviewed the chief executive of Servocell, I have to agree with his view that machine builders - and end users - could benefit from locks and interlocks based on piezo technology. Servocell has the knowledge and skills to design suitable locks and interlocks; the company just needs to find a supplier with vision that can work with it to create some highly innovative products.
