Modelling a Precision Positioning System

Abstract:

Article Preview

The paper presents the model and design of a flexure-based precise 4 DOF degree of freedom positioning system for micro-positioning uses. The positioning system is featured with monolithic architecture, flexure-based joints and ultra-fine adjustment screws. The mathematical model for the output displacements of the positioning system has been verified by finite element analysis (FEA).
