EXPLORATION AND APPLICATION OF MECHATRONIC DEVICES WITH PIEZOACTUATORS
Read the full article
This article introduces a significance of using the mechatronic devices with piezoactuators for setting surface
mounted components on print board. A new piezoelectric gripper is developed. This device has self-sensing
mode without any additional sensors and it can do micro-positioning of small details. The micro-positioning
function was examined experimentally. Hysteresis reduction was observed during micro-positioning. Some
different methods of sensing were suggested.
