Design of Compliant MEMS Grippers for Micro-Assembly Tasks

Abstract

Due to their monolithic construction and superior wear and loss properties, flexure joints have been used to reduce the mechanism size and increase the positioning accuracy. The compliance of flexure joints, however, can affect the static and dynamic characteristics of the overall mechanism. To design mechanisms containing flexure joints, we have proposed a… (More)
