Conceptual design of a 2-DoF planar high-speed industrial parallel manipulator
MetadataShow full item record
This study focuses on conceptual design alternatives for a planar high-speed/high-precision manipulator in terms of mechanism structure, control strate-gy, and drive system selection. These concepts are investigated specifically for planar 5-bar based parallel linkages. An over-constrained 6-bar linkage with par-allelogram loops and its simply constrained version are selected for detailed de-sign. In addition, a model-based control strategy including a stiffness model is discussed for future studies. Alternative drive systems are evaluated. Finally a prototype is presented.
