The Design of Micromanipulator Based on Piezo Actuator
In this paper, we describe a mcromanipulate mechanism used the converse piezoelectric effects, The micro-step mechanism based on converse piezoelectric effects is designed. Alternative signals programming from the computer is driving the piezo actuator by means of a dynamic power. The micro step motion of the the micro-step mechanism is realized used the electrostrictive effect and alternative clamping the guide staff, the position of Micro-step Mechanism is precise controlled.Micro gripper that actuated by piezoelectric cantilever was developed for the need of micro parts assembly.
