This paper introduces a microrobotic platform to manipulate and characterize individual paper fibers. Mechanical characterization of individual paper fibers determines the key parameters which affect the quality of paper sheets. Current laboratory tests are based on bulk paper fiber measurements. This paper presents a microrobotic platform which is able to characterize the flexibility of individual paper fibers directly, not in bulk amount and using indirect estimations. The flexibility of three different pulp samples is measured and the experimental results are reported.
