New Scale earns fifteenth patent in twelve years

New Scale earns fifteenth patent in twelve years

New piezoelectric haptic actuator features small size, non-magnetic operation, and ability to run distinct programmable vibration patterns for high-resolution haptic displays and other systems. The new patent covers a linear VIBE actuator, which generates vibrations by linear movement of the motor mass itself.

New Scale patents miniature piezo vibe motor

New Scale patents miniature piezo vibe motor

Developed for mobile devices, New Scale’s newly patented piezo vibe motor is 33% smaller than DC vibe motors and generates no magnetic interference with compasses or other sensors in the device. Smaller, non-magnetic vibration motor can replace DC vibration motor in...

New rotary micro drive eliminates jitter and magnetic fields

New Scale rotary drive system based on piezoelectric motor technology is also smaller and more precise than servo drives. It represents a major advance over servo drives for use in UAVs and micro-UAVs, micro assembly and many other applications.

New Scale awarded four patents for piezoelectric motor drive and control techniques

New Scale awarded four patents for piezoelectric motor drive and control techniques

Innovations reduce power consumption; optimize speed and force of miniature piezo motors. Since its founding in 2002, New Scale has secured twelve US patents and numerous corresponding international patents for piezoelectric motors and motion systems with unmatched miniaturization, micrometer-scale resolution, fully-integrated microelectronics and intelligent firmware.
