External Forces Resistance

Typical holding force of piezo motors is defined by friction force, required to make motor move. However, increase of friction force is not inconsequent for motor performances in terms of speed, max motion force and lifetime (tribology). In this paper, a new motor, offering high resolution positioning and holding position when unpowered, is presented. Based on a Stepping Piezo Actuator  at its core, this new design decouples the outer forces from the most sensitive parts of the motor. This allows the motor to propose a high force/mass ratio and sustain even higher forces without supply. Results obtained on prototype are presented, giving the reader the benefits of proposed technology.
