Piezoelectric motors can be used in a variety of applications due to their exact movements and the compact nature of their design. Piezo motors can duplicate a motion many thousands of times without sustaining wear and tear the way a traditional motor design would. This is due to the deforming and responsiveness of the ceramic and other materials.

Piezo motors can be designed in either linear or rotary form and applied to host of applications as both single and complex multi-axis system that enable very precise, repeatable and reliable motion control. The small size of the piezo motor means they can be used in a variety of locations where other solutions may have limitations. In addition, because piezo motors are not magnetic that can often be used in applications that require the generation of strong magnetic fields environments, such as medical MRI machines.

The initial effective motors using the reverse piezoelectric effect were created by the mid-1960s at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute. The technology has continued to evolve, and today a range of linear and rotary motion devices are available offering precise motion control down to nanometer precision. However, they are typically high-cost devices and are primarily used in specific premium market applications such as optics, semiconductor, and photonics.
