Microtools offer significant promise in a wide range of applications such as cell manipulation, microsurgery, nanotechnology processes, and many other fields. The development of these microtools is still in the initial stages and it can be strongly enhanced by using design tools. The microtools considered in this paper essentially consist of a multi-flexible structure actuated by two or more piezoceramic devices such that when each piezoceramic is actuated, it generates an output displacement… CONTINUE READING
