  author={Bing Li and Jin Gou},
The flexure hinge is an important part of micro-displacement table in the precision instruments. To improve the performance of micro-displacement table, the key parameters of its flexure hinges: radius and thickness of hinge and length of connecting rods etc. are studied. Aiming at a commonly used parallel four-bar flexure hinges structure, the parameters of flexure hinge are optimized by using the genetic algorithm under the condition that the frequency of objective function approaches a… CONTINUE READING
