Piezoelectric Actuated Microgripper
Model ID: 4695
This tutorial models a piezoelectrically actuated microgripper with mechanical contact. The microgripper contains a piezoelectric actuator that operates in the longitudinal mode. Elongation in the longitudinal direction creates a lifting movement to the structure. Simultaneous contraction in the transversal direction closes the gripper and allows it to move objects. The model uses the Piezoelectric Devices interface.
