Piezoelectric motors have been successfully developed for various applications like autofocus drives in camera lenses and manufacturing equipment for semiconductor production. Their high speed and accurate positioning capability, combined with a moderate holding torque, make piezo motors also very attractive for actuation purposes in spacecraft mechanisms. However, these motors require high driving voltage and have only a small driving torque. In this paper, the authors have developed a novel magnetostrictive rotary motor using Terfenol-D (Tb0.3Dy0.7Fe1.9) material as the driving elements. The small movement of the magnetostrictive actuator is scaled to 3 times by using flexible flexure hinges, a special designed mechanism is used to combine 3 such actuators to form a pure rotation movement and this movement is used to drive the rotor of the motor. Prototype of this research is made and a commonly 3-phase alternating current is used to drive the motor. Experiments are also carried on in the lab of School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering of Hangzhou Dianzi University.
