A 3-RRR compliant mechanism is designed to be used as a micro positioning stage. The stage displacements are analyzed by using structural FEA. However the experimental results for the manufactured mechanism are not compatible with the FEA which are mostly accepted as ideal while designing. A position control using Sliding Mode Control with Disturbance Observer is proposed for the reference tracking of the center of the stage. The motion of the center is measured by using a laser position sensor and the necessary references for the piezoelectric actuators are calculated using the pseudo inverse of the transformation matrix coming from the experimentally determined kinematics of the mechanism. Piezoelectric actuator linear models are used for disturbance rejection. Finally, the position control of the mechanism is succeeded although it has big errors in manufacturing, assembly etc.
