Patented piezoelectric motor with smallest size, high force and speed The heart of New Scale's M3 micro mechatronics module platform is the SQUIGGLE motor, a revolutionary linear micro motor with incredibly small size and big performance. This patented ultrasonic motor creates high force and speed with only a few parts – compare to complex electromagnetic gearhead motors with hundreds of parts. SQUIGGLE micro motors allow product designers to add motion features into products where they could not have been imagined before.
Researchers at Tufts University have put together a “molecular motor” that is only about a nanometer across. It’s not the first single-molecule motor ever made, but this one, unlike others, can be activated singly by the minute tip of a scanning electron microscope. They’re working with Guinness to get certified as the smallest motor in the world.
