Functional block diagram of the system.
(a) Y-Z axes manipulator assembly. (b) X-axis manipulator assembly.
Illustration of motion in Y and Z axes.
Axial step resolution of all X-Y-Z axes operating at half-step mode. Dotted-line images are magnified images of a portion of the plot. They give a clear image of each step.
Schematic diagram of control scheme using Novint Falcon (Ref. 28).
Images of microgrippers are shown in (a) and (c) and their corresponding characteristic plots are shown in (b) and (d).
Experimental setup used for microscale object handling.
Screenshot of LABVIEW VI during manipulation of SF-9 cell.
Microscopic image of assembled microspheres resembling double-T.
Sequence of micro-pick-and-place process showing double-T structure made using microbeads.
Comparison of axial motion and lateral motion in half-step mode.
Operational step modes.
Comparison of features of both microgrippers.
