XYZ Micromanipulator, Three inputs, Translational DOFs
This paper introduces a three degree of freedom XYZ Micromanipulator (XYZM) that is fabricated in the x-y plane and positions components in the x, y, and z directions using three independent linear inputs. The mechanism positions components on a platform using three legs, each composed of a slider mechanism and a parallelogram mechanism.
