Abstract: In this study, several joint axis orientations on equilateral platforms and the limbs of 3-UPU parallel manipulators (PMs) are examined. The generated joint layouts for the platforms were matched with each other to generate and enumerate manipulator architectures based on certain assumptions. The structures of thus obtained manipulators are examined and limb types were determined. These limb types were analyzed using screw theory. The instantaneous mobility of the manipulators and the motion characteristics of the moving platforms are tabulated. The finite mobility analysis of one of the manipulators is performed using a software package as an example. Among several different 3-UPU PM architectures, 118 novel 3-UPU PMs with non-parasitic 3-degrees-of-freedom are significantly important. The classified 3-UPU PMs with determined motion characteristics can be used by researchers as a design alternative for their specific design task. © The Author(s) 2021.
