Abstract

This paper reports the development of a semi-automatic microgripping system that consists of a microgripper and a x,y,z positioning system. The microgripper has two 1DOF fingers fabricated by using an amorphous, soft magnetic material and is actuated electromagnetically. The microgripper is embedded in the 3DOF positioning system with the help of a stainless steel holder under an angle, which is manually adjusted, in respect to the working field. The position of the gripper is observed optically and by three digital indicators with continuous position tracking. All axes are actuated by step motors which allow precise positioning of the micro particles under manipulation. The microgripping system was tested and demonstrated in pick and place cases, under an optical microscope in atmospheric conditions. Optical fibres (125 μm in diameter) and bonding wires (50 μm in diameter) were handled. The temperature on the actuator, on the gripper fingers and on the gripper tips during manipulation was measured using K type (Ni/CrNi) thermocouples. The gripping force was measured as well.
