Abstract

A new contactless pneumatic microfeeder based on distributed manipulation is proposed. By cooperation of
dynamically programmable microactuators, the part to be conveyed floats over an air cushion and is moved to the
desired location with the desired orientation. CFD simulations are used to test the validity of the proposed concept
and refine the design of the microactuators
