Look in your inkjet printer, that's a stepper motor.
Basically, you THINK the printhead's shushing across the paper left and right spraying down crap. It's not.
It's a stepper motor that basically moves the print head a bit, stops, sprays ink, then moves, stops, sprays ink, moves, etc. It's just stepping so fast you think it's one continuous smooth motion back and forth. And it's doing this thousands of times a minute back and forth.
