Title (EN) BALLOON ACTUATION FOR LAMINATED DEVICES
(FR) ACTIONNEMENT À BALLONNET POUR DISPOSITIFS STRATIFIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Balloon actuators are incorporated into a laminated mechanism by bonding patterned flexible layers (e.g., with an adhesive) to form at least one balloon with a central unbonded region that forms a hermetic chamber; at least one of the patterned flexible layers is selectively bonded to more-rigid parts of the laminated mechanism in a configuration such that pressurization of the hermetic chamber(s) produces relative linear or rotational displacement of at least one of the more-rigid parts with respect to another of the more-rigid parts.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des actionneurs à ballonnet qui sont incorporés dans un mécanisme stratifié en liant des couches souples structurées (par exemple, avec un adhésif) pour former au moins un ballonnet avec une région centrale non liée qui forme une chambre hermétique ; au moins l'une des couches souples structurées est liée de manière sélective à des parties plus rigides du mécanisme stratifié dans une configuration telle que la pressurisation de la (des) chambre(s) hermétique(s) produit un déplacement linéaire ou rotatif relatif d'au moins l'une des parties plus rigides par rapport à une autre des parties plus rigides.
