 SQUIGGLE® ultrasonic piezo linear actuator :

The SQUIGGLE motor is a revolutionary linear motor that sets a new benchmark for small size and high performance. The patented ultrasonic motor creates high force and speed with only a few parts. It replaces complex electromagnetic gearhead motors which have hundreds of parts.

*       Precise: nanometer resolution
*       Fast: variable speed from 1 µm/second to 10 mm/second
*       Strong: 5 Newton force
*       Tiny: as small as 1.5 x 1.5 x 6 mm
*       Quiet and smooth
*       Non-magnetic
*       Vacuum compatible
*       Cryogenic compatible

 Amplified Piezo-electric Actuator

- Multilayer piezo-electric actuator placed in a deformable metal frame
- Amplification of movement due to the structure of the frame
- Low voltage actuation (<170V) due to the multilayer piezo's
- High forces: up till 1900 N
- High resonance frequencies: up till 24500 Hz and hence high bandwidth
- Well suited to high dynamic apps like active vibration damping
- Infinite resolution: used in nanopositioning
