Integrating compliant mechanisms into high-precision motion systems has facilitated the development of lightweight and frictionless designs. However, these systems often face challenges related to low-frequency parasitic resonance modes and limited structural damping, leading to compromised position accuracy and restricted control bandwidth....

This research presents a novel data-based modal control method for actively dampening the flexible mode in a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system. Traditional passive damping methods add significant mass to the system, making recent advances in sensor and actuator technology, such as lightweight piezoelectric materials, a more appealing...

Undesired vibrations are one of the most significant sources of error in any type of mechatronic system or component. The emerging field of elastic (locally resonant) metamaterials offers a viable solution to successfully suppress these by generating bandgaps in both resonant and non-resonant regions. In this thesis, metamaterials in a sensor...

A novel nonlinear stiffness unit cell aided magnetic gravity compensator is proposed for the purpose of isolating low-frequency vibrations. A negative stiffness magnet setup is combined with a compliant unit cell with tailored nonlinear force-displacement characteristics. This combination offers a large range of motion featuring low stiffness, a...

To improve Active Vibration control methods like Independent Modal Space Control (IMSC), an estimate of the modal contribution of vibrational eigenmodes of compliant structures is required. In this work, three Recursive Bayesian input and state estimation algorithms previously introduced in civil engineering are evaluated for use on on high-tech...

The use of passive viscoelastic damping and active piezoelectric damping in a hybrid side-by-side configuration is explored in this paper. The goal is to combine the strengths of both individual methods to achieve better damping performance when targeting a single eigenmode or multiple resonances. It is found that a hybrid configuration where a...

Vibration suppression of flexible end-effectors has become one of the great challenges within the semiconductor industry to achieve the precision required to produce chips. These end-effectors tend to be prone to vibrations due to their lightweight design and low thickness, whilst they still should have high accuracy and precision. This...

The high-tech industry is constantly searching for methods to make more efficient, more accurate, and faster machines. One of the methods to improve the performance of these machines is active vibration control(AVC) which can help to achieve faster transient responses. One of the ways to achieve this is better controllability which means more...

The demand for faster production times and higher precisions in the industrial automation is ever-increasing. Resonance modes caused by flexural elements in these machines are limiting the maximum bandwidth. Because of this, high-precision motion systems in industrial machines are limited in the maximum operating speed and precision. To improve...
