The objective of this paper describes a new method to design a micro-gripper. In the paper, we use compliant mechanism actuated by micro combined V-shape electrothermal actuator to design a microgripper that the claw can clip the micro object. The compliant mechanism employs flexible to generate movement without any hinge; therefore, it is suitable for MEMS manufacture. The design of micro-gripper is accomplished in compliant mechanism with topology optimum and solved by sequential linear programming (SLP) methods. The design considerations, the analysis method, and the design results are discussed.
