    • Innovative concept for additive manufacturing of compliant mechanisms 

      Kiener, L.; Saudan, H.; Cosandier, F.; Perruchoud, G.; Spanoudakis, P. (2019)
      The new geometric possibilities offered by Additive Manufacturing (AM) combined with a complete redesign of compliant mechanisms have allowed CSEM to develop innovative concepts (patent pending) to drastically reduce the ...
    • Large angle flexure pivot development for future science payloads 

      Spanoudakis, P.; Kiener, L.; Cosandier, F.;  Schwab, P.; Giriens, L.; Kruis, J.; Grivon, D. (2019)
      An innovative design of a Large Angle Flexure Pivot (LAFP) is described. It combines the advantages of flexure mechanisms while surpassing one of their few flaws, small displacement strokes. The LAFP design exceeds these ...
    • Six design principles for SLM-based compliant mechanisms 

      Cosandier, F. (2019-09-17)
      This work discusses 6 design principles useful to optimise compliant mechanisms for Additive Manufacturing (AM) and more specifically Selective Laser Melting (SLM). The design principles are: 1) lattice flexures, 2) ...
