LeviPrint assembles small objects in a contactless way using ultrasonic phased-arrays and optimization algorithms. We explore a set of methods that enables 6 Degrees-of-Freedom (DoF) control of elongated bodies. We then evaluate different ultrasonic arrangements to optimize the manipulation of these bodies. The combination of arrangements and optimization algorithms allow us to levitate, orientat ... [++]
LeviPrint assembles small objects in a contactless way using ultrasonic phased-arrays and optimization algorithms. We explore a set of methods that enables 6 Degrees-of-Freedom (DoF) control of elongated bodies. We then evaluate different ultrasonic arrangements to optimize the manipulation of these bodies. The combination of arrangements and optimization algorithms allow us to levitate, orientate and assemble complex objects. These techniques and arrangements can be leveraged for the microfabrication of electromechanical components and in-vivo additive manufacturing. We highlight the reduction of cross-contamination and the capability to manufacture inside closed containers from the outside. [--]

Acoustic lock: position and orientation trapping of non-spherical sub-wavelength particles in mid-air using a single-axis acoustic levitator Cox, L; Croxford, A; Drinkwater, Bruce W.; Marzo Pérez, Asier (American Institute of Physics, 2018) Artículo / ArtikuluaWe demonstrate acoustic trapping in both position and orientation of a non-spherical particle of sub-wavelength size in mid-air. To do so, we multiplex in time a pseudo-one-dimensional vertical standing wave and a ...
Brizzotti Andrade, Marco Aurélio; Ramos, Tiago S.; Adamowski, Julio C.; Marzo Pérez, Asier (American Institute of Physics, 2020) Artículo / ArtikuluaWe model and realize an ultrasonic contactless pick-and-place device capable of picking, self-centering, self-orienting, translating, and releasing flat millimetric objects. The device is an ultrasonic Langevin transducer ...
The majority of acoustic impact studies developed over the last 50 years have used a similar acoustic parameter Leq, Ldn but the noise mapping methodology has been very uneven. The selection of the measurement points, ...
