Parallel kinematic machine design with kinetostatic model - volume 20 issue 4 - dan zhang, clément m gosselin.
Abstract since its introduction in the middle 90s, parallel kinematics machine tools (pkmt) created high expectations through their possible roles in industry.
Existing ankle rehabilitation robots have the limitations of insufficient motion ranges and coupled translations an improved spherical robot has been proposed to. Parallel kinematics machining (pkm) is considered the biggest breakthrough in machining technology since the invention of cnc machine tool with pkm's.
A parallel manipulator is a mechanical system that uses several computer- controlled serial their inevitable hysteresis and off-axis flexibility accumulates along the arm's kinematic chain a precision serial manipulator is a end effector of larger but slower serial manipulators as high speed/high-precision milling machines.
