Abstract

A displacement magnifying mechanism is usually employed in a nanopositioning stage to achieve large stage motion. A lever mechanism is the most widely used displacement magnifying mechanism. This study proposes a more reasonable model including flexible levers to estimate the stiffness and displacement of the stage. This paper describes an analytic lever model and its experimental verification. Analytic and experimental results were very similar. The model proposed in this study can well predict the stage motions.
