This paper proposes a novel compliant flexure-based microgripper with a second order amplifier including Scott-Russell magnification mechanism (SRMM) and lever amplifier. Both the dynamic model of the system and the Bouc-Wen hysteresis model are established and identified through using least square optimization method. For eliminating the hysteresis phenomenon of the actuator, compensation control method based on inverse dynamic model is proposed. A novel control strategy based on adaptive backstepping sliding model control (ABSMC) with compensator is presented to control the nonlinear system. Simulation results demonstrate that the performance of proposed control strategy is superior to conventional backstepping sliding mode control (CBSMC).
