Abstract

Flexure-based mechanisms do not suffer from friction, stiction or backlash, and therefore they show a high level of determinacy. Several new flexure hinge designs will be presented, as well as a method for optimising the geometry of flexure hinges to maximise the support stiffness over a range of motion. The results will be demonstrated by a two-degree-of-freedom stage that combines a large range of motion with high eigenfrequency.
