Due to their many advantages, flexible structures are increasingly being used as guide and transmission elements in handling systems. Prismatic solid-state joints with a concentrated cross-sectional reduction are predominantly used as flexure pivots for both microscopic and macroscopic designs. A transfer of these geometries to applications in cryogenic working environments is not easily possible at temperatures below -130 °C due to the changed material properties. In this paper, the further development of swivel joints as cascaded solid state joints for such a cryogenic environment is illustrated by the targeted adaptation of certain joint parameters and dimensions. By means of a comprehensive FEM simulation, it can be shown how the influence of specific parameters affects movement accuracy, process forces and shape stability and to what extent these geometric parameters influence each other in their effect.
