Paper Title:
Amplification Ratio and Stiffness of Bridge-Type Flexure Hinge
  Abstract

Bridge-type flexure hinge is a classical flexure amplification mechanism. The amplification ratio and stiffness are the key parameters in an amplification mechanism. Elastic mechanics was used to analyze the input and output stiffness of bridge-type amplification mechanism in relation to the translational and rotational stiffness of the flexure pivots. The result showed that the stiffness model can explain well the outer characteristic of bridge-type flexure hinge.
