A novel driving principle by means of the parasitic motion of the microgripper and its preliminary application in the design of the linear actuator.

Abstract

This paper presents a novel driving principle by means of the parasitic motion of the microgripper. Actuators based on this principle can realize the large displacement range and high speed easily. Also the structure can be simple. A parasitic motion principle linear actuator mainly consisting of two piezoelectric stacks, two microgrippers and a mover was… (More)
