Title: Ink jet printer head actuator and manufacturing method thereof

Abstract: Disclosed is an ink jet printer head actuator and a manufacturing method thereof. The ink jet printer head actuator comprises a vibrating plate, a portion of a plate surface of the vibrating plate being mechanically deformed by an external force; a chamber plate formed with a plurality of chambers, the chamber plate sucking and discharging ink into and out of the plurality of chambers by vibration of the vibrating plate; a protective thin film intervened between the vibrating plate and the chamber plate for preventing the vibrating plate from being etched when the plurality of chambers are formed in the chamber plate and for preventing the vibrating plate from being corroded by keeping ink in the plurality of chambers from being brought into contact with the vibrating plate; a plurality of piezoelectric elements attached to a surface of the vibrating plate for vibrating portions of the vibrating plate which correspond to the plurality of chambers, respectively, while being deformed in a lengthwise direction depending upon electric power supply; and a plurality of electrodes at least laminated on the plurality of piezoelectric elements for supplying electric power thereto, respectively.
