Moisture-resistant piezoelectric micro motor

Small, precise motor is sealed for operation in high-moisture environments

This video demonstrates a customized SQUIGGLE micro motor operating under water. The piezoelectric motor is customized with a water-resistant housing including a silicon molded bellows and a non-rotating tip. The motor measures 7 mm diameter, has a force of 2 Newtons and moves with a position resolution of 0.5 micrometers. This motor system has an external driver.

The sealed motor is intended for operation in high-moisture environments or implantable medical devices. The housing also enables operation in clean room settings. New Scale creates custom motion systems for OEMs, based on our SQUIGGLE motor and other piezoelectric motor technology.
