Micro Floating Tip

MEMS Precision Instruments

Welcom request design for spicific applications

The gripping tip is mechanically isolated from external disturbances by the low stiffness flexures from which it is suspended. The purpose in making a floating tip is to minimize unwanted deflections that would interfere with the tips meeting at exactly the same point in space when they close. Here the tip is shown in its open position. The heavy outer beams act as a tweezer to operate the inner fine tweezer (the floating one) and also protect it from being hit.
