A Pantograph Mechanism With Large-Deflective Hinges for Miniature Surface Mount Systems
In this paper, a new surface mount system with parallel arrangement miniature manipulators is proposed for use in system downsizing. The miniature manipulator consists of a molded pantograph mechanism, which is composed of large deflective hinges and links, both made of the same materials. In order to create such systems, first, durability of the pantograph mechanism is to be confirmed by fatigue tests. Next, the input and output displacement characteristics of the pantograph mechanism are to be experimentally discussed. Finally, propriety of the proposed system should be confirmed.
