A microgripper using smart piezoelectric actuators

  title={A microgripper using smart piezoelectric actuators},
  author={Yassine Haddab and Nicolas Chaillet and Alain Bourjault},
The manipulation of very small objects is one of the most important tasks in microrobotics. Micromanipulators are required in all fields where precise manipulation of very small objects must be performed like microsurgery or assembly of MEMS. It is well known that downsizing the tools used in the macroworld is not appropriate to achieve tasks in the microworld. In this paper we present a prototype of a microgripper made up of piezoelectric bending unimorphs. A dynamic model of the piezoelectric… CONTINUE READING
