Lionel Kiener obtained his HES degree in micro-engineering in 2001. He
worked eight years on the development and production of electrical
rotary joints (sliprings) and mechanisms for space and industrial
applications. Since 2012, he has been working for CSEM as an R&D
engineer in the design and testing of industrial and space projects
related to compliant mechanisms for high demanding applications. Today,
he is involved in the development of the corner cube mechanism of the
IRS for meteosat third generation (MTG) satellites as a mechanical
engineer for the design, manufacturing and assembly activities. Mr
Kiener is also involved in the design and testing of additive
manufacturing based compliant structures since the first feasibility
Innovative Concept for Additive Manufacturing of Compliant Mechanisms
The new geometric possibilities offered by additive manufacturing have allowed us to develop, build, and test compliant mechanisms with almost no support structure under the fixture blades.
