This abstract presents the development and evaluation of a non-contact rotary mechanism powered by close-range ultrasonic energy, with a primary emphasis on its design and performance. The pursuit of efficient, contactless rotary motion has gained significant importance in various industrial and technological applications. This study describes the innovative design of a rotary mechanism utilizing ultrasonic energy as the driving force, obviating the need for physical contact with rotating components. The design of this novel rotary mechanism leverages ultrasonic transducers to generate high-frequency vibrations, which are then transformed into rotational motion through a precisely engineered mechanism. The research explores the intricate details of the design, including the choice of materials, transducer placement, and resonance tuning to optimize performance. The mechanism's construction ensures low friction and minimal wear, making it a promising candidate for applications where reduced mechanical wear and maintenance are critical. Performance assessment of the ultrasonic rotary mechanism encompasses a comprehensive examination of key parameters, such as rotational speed, torque, power consumption, and efficiency. Experimental results reveal the mechanism's capability to achieve a high rotational speed while maintaining low energy consumption, thus underscoring its energy-efficient nature.
