Disclosed is a device that permits precise minute mechanical movement of
an object. The device employes a pivoting ball in a socket and a sliding stylus
that acts as a multiplexer.
Relative positioning of the object is achieved at one end of the stylus which is
fixed at a distance from the center of the ball that is less than the distance of the
opposite end of the stylus to the center of the ball.
Simultaneous rotation of the ball and the sliding movement of the stylus
achieves any desired position for the object. This device is depicted using the
magnetic clutch concept. This capability can also be achieved through an air
cylinder and clamp mechanism.
