Title: METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A MECHANISM
Abstract:
A method for manufacturing a mechanism (100) comprises the steps consisting of: i) assembling planar layers (10; 56; 58; 60; 64) together to form a substantially planar multilayer structure (68); ii) deploying the multilayer structure in a direction (Z) substantially normal to the planar layers (10; 56; 58; 60; 64). At least one first layer (60) of said layers (10; 56; 58; 60; 64) forms a flexible blade (62) in the mechanism (100). The blade (62) is attached, in the mechanism (100), to a mass (92). The mass (92) is more rigid than the blade (62). The blade (62) is attached to the mass (92) during a step that follows the step ii). This method can be implemented, in particular, for manufacturing all or part of a mechanism such as a timepiece movement.
