In this paper we present the mechanical design of a microgripper performing microassembly tasks with objects whose dimensions are less than 1mm with a maximum grasping action of 0.9N and fingers displacement of 0.6mm. The efficiency of the microgripper has been experimentally tested by using a proper test-bed and laboratory experiences. The results are illustrated and discussed to validate the microgripper that has been built using flexural joints structure.
