More than thirty years after the initial concepts, commercial Delta and Delta-like robots serve a niche market for high-speed pick-and-place applications. Expired patents and new fields of application have led to increased research and innovative designs. By functionally extending the original translational Delta robot with additional serial chains,(More)
In the present paper, we discussed about a kinamatic design of 3-5R translational parallel mechanism with a large utility workspace. We defined the utility workspace as a closed area, from any point to other points in which the mechanism can move without suffering from singularity and workspace boundary. A computational algorithm of the volume of the(More)
We present a kinematic design of a translational parallel manipulator with fine adjustment capability of platform orientation (TPMFAO). In order to clarify possible kinematic structures for it, structural synthesis of fully decoupled mechanism and partially decoupled mechanism both with six degrees of freedom (dof) was carried out based on the synthesis(More)
