  • Abstract Most of the microgrippers developed in recent years still lack of the systematic mechanism design background in the overall design scope of microgripper. The main objective of this investigation is to find new possibilities of design concept in order to enhance the design scope of microgripper.
    This thesis presents the design and analysis of microgripper for microassembly that are based on the mechanism design perspective, which particularly involves the 3-D working space and planar compliant microgripper. Several feasible solutions of the microgripper with 3-D working space are presented include the use of molten solder self-assembly, hinge mechanism, shape memory alloy, electrostatic-force assembly, and magnetic-force assembly. An atlas of 28 types of planar compliant linkages for two-finger microgripper is presented based on the systematic design procedure. The FEM simulation shows the preliminary satisfactory results that reveal the good agreement with the expected kinematic motion. It can be concluded that the mechanism design concept presented in this study can be integrated into the design work of micro scale actuating device.
