English abstract:
This paper analytically investigates flexures to mechanically guide the moving part
of a precision positioning system actuated by Lorentz actuators, where the control bandwidth
is typically restricted by the second or higher mechanical resonances that can include internal
modes of the positioning mass. Based on analytical models, mechanical resonant frequencies
are derived for a given set of parameters to determine flexure dimensions and material. As
a result of the derivation and analysis, a model is proposed to predict this second resonant
frequency for a given first resonant frequency to achieve better control design and performance.
As the verification, the effectiveness of the proposed model is confirmed by using Finite Element
Analysis (FEA), as well as an experimental setup for frequency response.
