    Abstract

    Mechanisms formed by rigid elements are not suitable for applications at the microlevel due to manufacturing limitations. For the same reason, devices for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are basically planar mechanisms. This paper addresses a microplatform able to move in the three dimensional space. It is formed by bimorph actuators connected to the central platform by compliant elements. The forward and reverse analyses for the microplatform are presented.
