The ultrasonic motor have recently begun to be used for certain unique practical utilizations in the fields of industrial medical consumer and automotive applications. Ultrasonic motor stimulated to ultrasonic oscillations by piezoelectrics to drive a rotor via friction contact. The metal and ceramic composite component was used as the stator element to generate ultrasonic vibrations. The ultrasonic motor used here was the windmill type ultrasonic motor operated by single-phase AC source. The windmill type ultrasonic motors has only three components; a stator element of two windmill shape slotted metal endcaps a rotor and a bearing. In this paper a prototype motor with 11.35 mm diameter was fabricated then relationship between the pressing force applied to a rotor and the rotation characteristic of windmill type ultrasonic motor are investigated when stator’s slots was changed from 4, 6, 8 and thickness changed from 0.15, 0.20 mm, respectively. Optimum pressing force applied to a rotor in the six stators was 1.2 mN.
