The unique features of ultrasonic motors are high output torque, quick response, large holding torque without energy dissipation, and operation free of a magnetic field. Many types of ultrasonic motors have been proposed that can be classified by the type of elliptical particle motion created in the stator. Here, we introduce only two types of ultrasonic motors: the standing-wave type and the traveling-wave type. The standing-wave type is sometimes referred to as a vibratory-coupler type, or a “woodpecker” type; a vibratory piece is connected to a piezoelectric driver, and the tip portion generates flat elliptical movement.
