The Optimal Design of Three Degree-of-Freedom Parallel Mechanisms for Machining Applications


The subject of this paper is the optimal design of a parallel mechanism intended for three-axis machining applications. Parallel mechanisms are interesting alternative designs in this context but most of them are designed for threeor six-axis machining applications. In the last case, the position and the orientation of the tool are coupled and the shape of… (More)
