The objective of this paper is to design a suitable controller for a piezoelectric microprecision positioner. The dimensions of this positioner are 150 mm × 150 mm × 10 mm and with X-Y-θZ three degrees of freedoms. Piezo-electric actuators are used to drive the positioner, which is constructed by flexure structures. In order to improve the short stroke of PZT, simple-levers are added to the structures. In this research, a diagonal recurrent neural networks (DRNN) controller is added to the system with aim to reduce the effect causes by the hysteresis, inaccurate system model and phase lag, and to save time for adjusting control gains for PID control. From the experimental results, it shows that the positioning errors for the X-axis, Y-axis, and θ-axis of continuous stepping test are less than 20 nm and 0.15 μrad. For the ramp tracking test, the tracking errors are less than 30 nm and 0.3 μrad. For the circular tracking test, the tracking error is less than 55 nm for both X- and Y-axis.
