Why is friction tape needed?

Posted · Add Comment

It is the friction between piezo elements and rotor that translates the traveling wave on stator into a rotational force on rotor.

To ensure sufficient friction a friction tape is mounted on rotor. We’ve had good experience and results using H-old: GL.96.glass fiber enforced adhesive tape with an alu layer.

Apart from ensuring the required friction properties, the tape also prevents acoustical noise.
