Analysis and suppression of residual vibration in microhand for high-speed single-cell manipulation

Ebubekir Avci, Chanh Nghiem Nguyen, Kenichi Ohara, Yasushi Mae, Tatsuo Arai
2013 International Journal of Mechatronics and Automation  
Because most current microsystems are task-specific, the realization of a general-purpose microhand that is compatible with a wide range of applications is necessary.  ...  This system has been designed with an optimized parallel mechanism through inverse kinematics in which the manipulability of different-sized microobjects is iii Above all, I would like to express my deep  ...  Manipulation of Various-Sized Microobjects Microspheres, with diameters of 97, 55, 20, and 9.7 µm are manipulated to show that different-sized objects can be manipulated with this microhand.  ...

2021 Micromachines  
In this paper, we present a micronewton force-controlled two-finger microhand with a soft magnetic end-effector for stable grasping.  ...  In this system, a homemade electromagnet was used as the driving device to execute micro-objects manipulation. There were two soft end-effectors with diameters of 300 μm.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
