This paper reports on the development of several novel MEMS machines based on linear Lorentz force actuators. These were monolithically fabricated and integrate micro machined polymer magnets. Polymer magnets allow a highly flexible definition of magnetic areas, arbitrary shape and properties. Through the combination of these linear actuators with mechanical compliant structures using Epon SU-8, in-plane and out-of-plane micro positioners, micro motors and micro grippers were realized.
