Our Wavelling Technology Overview

Travelling Wave Non-Magnetic Piezo Motors with Built-in Encoder

At Tekceleo, our Wavelling technology offers exceptional precision and control with our Travelling Wave Piezo Motors. This unique technology utilizes ultrasonic waves to create mechanical vibrations that are then converted into rotary motion. The result is smooth and precise motion control that is ideal for applications such as robotics, medical devices, and automation equipment.

Our unique WAVELLING® know-how, ranges from 20mm (for miniature motors) to 75mm diameters. The diversity of our line of motors enables them to achieve a wide range of performances and uses, ranging from nominal speeds of below 1 RPM to 600 RPM depending on the type of motors, all without a reducer (no backlash or jerks). The nominal torques can vary from a few mN.m to 2N.m depending on the type of motor.

Our Travelling Wave Piezo Motors also come with built-in encoders, providing accurate feedback on position and velocity. This feature ensures that your equipment operates precisely and reliably, with the added benefit of reduced wiring and installation time. Additionally, our motors have a high torque-to-weight ratio, making them ideal for applications where space is limited or weight is a concern.

TEKCELEO offers the following actuators, all of which allow non-magnetic configurations for MRI environments:

WLG-75-R, 75 mm diameter motor

WLG-30-R, 30 mm diameter motor

WLG-20-R, 20 mm diameter motor

All of our drives incorporate speed/position sensors and can be customized depending on the application.
