Small Vibration Motor Technologies

Our team of engineers specializes in creating mini vibration motors and tactile feedback solutions utilizing four unique motor technologies. Each technology has its own characteristics, advantages and trade-offs. By understanding the unique advantages and compromises of each technology, we are able to design tailor-made solutions to meet the specific requirements of our customers' applications small vibrating device.

Eccentric Rotating Mass (ERM) Vibration Motors

ERM motors are original technology for generating vibrations and offer several advantages. They are user-friendly, come in a wide range of sizes, and can be flexibly adjusted in vibration amplitude and frequency to suit any application.

These motors can be found in a variety of devices, from small smart watches to large truck steering wheels. At our company, we specialize in designing and manufacturing vibration motors with different motor technologies including iron core, coreless and brushless. These motors are available in cylindrical and coin-type forms.

One of the main advantages of ERM motors is their simplicity and ease of use.

DC motors, in particular, are easy to control, and if longevity is important, brushless vibration motors can be used.

However, there are some compromises to consider. There is a geometric relationship between vibration amplitude and frequency and speed, which means that it is not possible to adjust amplitude and frequency independently.

To meet different requirements, we offer three motor structures and technologies. Iron core motors offer a lower cost option, coreless motors offer a balance between cost and performance, and brushless motors offer the highest performance and longest life.

Linear Resonant Actuators(LRA)

Linear resonant actuators (LRA) function more like a speaker than a traditional motor. Instead of cones, they consist of a mass that moves back and forth through a voice coil and spring.

A distinctive feature of the LRA is its resonant frequency, at which the amplitude reaches its maximum. Deviating even a few Hertz from this resonant frequency can result in significant losses in vibration amplitude and energy.

Due to slight manufacturing differences, the resonant frequency of each LRA will be slightly different. Therefore, a special driver IC is required to automatically adjust the drive signal and allow each LRA to resonate at its own resonant frequency.

LRAs are commonly found in smartphones, small touchpads, tracker pads, and other handheld devices weighing less than 200 grams. They come in two main shapes - coins and bars - as well as some square designs. The axis of vibration may vary depending on the form factor, but it always occurs along a single axis (unlike an ERM motor which vibrates on two axes).

Our product range is constantly evolving to meet specific customer needs. If you are considering using an LRA, it will be helpful to consult with one of our application design engineers.

Know More About Eccentric Mass Vibrators

How do they work?

Small brush vibration motors usually have a small conductive brush at the bottom. The brush is in contact with a rotating metal shaft that has a north and south pole. When an electric current is applied to the brush, it creates a magnetic field that interacts with the shaft, causing it to rotate. As the shaft rotates, it causes the brush to vibrate, causing the attached object to vibrate as well.

What are the benefits?

The main advantage of small vibration motors is their compact size, making them ideal for applications where space is limited. Additionally, they are cost-effective and easy to manufacture. These motors offer a variety of mounting options, including wire bonding with Molex or JST connectors.

What are the drawbacks?

One of the main limitations of small vibration motors is their relatively low power output compared to other types of vibration motors. Additionally, they are generally less efficient and require more electricity to produce the same level of vibrational force.

Vibration motors of 7mm small coin vibration motor, 8mm diameter haptic motor, 10mm mini vibration motor to dia 12mm have a wide range of applications, and their main uses are as follows:

Vibration Alerting

Vibration alerts are a useful way to provide notifications or warnings without relying solely on sound or visual cues. This is especially useful in situations where sounds are difficult to hear or visual cues may be ignored.

Vibration alarms are commonly used on a variety of devices, such as: Cell phone or pager: Many cell phones and pagers have vibrating motors that alert the user of incoming calls, messages, or notifications. This is particularly useful when the device is set to silent mode or the user is in a noisy environment.

Firefighter Radios: Firefighters often wear radios equipped with vibrating alarms. These alerts help them respond quickly to incoming calls or important messages, even in noisy or chaotic situations where audible alerts may be difficult to detect.

Medical Devices: Medical devices, such as respiratory assistance devices or pacemakers, may contain vibrating alarms to indicate specific operating or maintenance requirements. For example, a breathing assistance device may vibrate to alert the user that a filter needs to be changed, while a pacemaker may use vibration to indicate that the battery needs to be replaced.

Overall, vibration alerts provide an alternative way to grab the user's attention and provide important information or warnings in a variety of situations.

Touch Screen Haptics

Having a range of vibrating motor small and haptic actuators optimized for screen haptic applications is important to delivering a high-quality user experience. Being able to simulate the feeling of pressing a physical button on a flat screen can greatly enhance the usability and intuitiveness of touch interfaces.

The use of haptic feedback in touch screens is becoming increasingly common across a variety of industries, including mobile devices, gaming consoles, automotive displays and industrial control panels.

It can improve user interaction by providing haptic feedback that confirms actions or helps users navigate menus and interfaces more efficiently.

The launch of heavy-duty tactile actuators designed for larger screens, such as point-of-sale systems, is also good news.

Larger screens typically require more powerful haptic actuators to provide sufficient vibration intensity and responsiveness. Equipping dedicated actuators for these applications ensures optimal performance and user satisfaction.

In summary, providing a variety of vibration motors and haptic actuators optimized for screen haptic applications can greatly enhance the user experience and make touch screens feel more tactile and intuitive.

Haptics for User Interfaces

Haptic feedback can also be a valuable addition to various non-screen user interfaces.

Capacitive touch surfaces, such as capacitive switch panels, can benefit from haptics, providing tactile confirmation when interacting with touch-sensitive controls. By embedding the vibration motor into the control column or handle, machine operators receive instinctive feedback that enhances their understanding and control of the equipment.

This type of haptic feedback goes beyond simple alert functionality and allows for more nuanced information to be conveyed to the user. By varying the vibration pattern, intensity or duration, a range of feedback can be provided to indicate different states, actions or warnings.

Additionally, haptic feedback can be applied to a variety of items, turning them into tactile user interfaces.

For example, integrating vibration motors into shoes could provide tactile feedback to guide the wearer, such as providing vibration direction to one foot at an intersection.

In vehicles, the steering wheel can use haptics as part of a lane departure warning system to provide vibrating feedback when the vehicle veers out of its lane.

The possibilities are vast, and integrating haptic feedback into user interfaces beyond the screen opens up new avenues for intuitive interaction and improved user experience.
