The Elliptecmotor is a low-cost piezo motor that weights 1.2 g. With a few microns step size, motion speeds from several microns per minute up to several hundred millimeters per second are achievable. The direct driving forces of 0.3 – 0.5 N can be increased up to 5 N with simple levers or gears. Position control concepts for the micrometer scale using sub 1$ sensors and vibration reduction applications can be realized in a cost-effective way.
