Development of a 2-Dof Parallel Kinematics Machine for Macro Scale Products
This paper presents a new computer numerical control (CNC). The revolution of a parallel kinematics machine (PKM) is reducing many problems in the manufacturing process from a theoretical and practical point of view. The experimental setup was developed to optimize the kinematics design of a 2 Degree of Freedom (2 DoF) planar parallel manipulator. The excellent workspace design without link collision is presented in this paper. It was observed that increasing the precision in the PKM modeling, reduces the drawback of the existing product. The result is obtained from the various experiment which were plotted graphically and discussed in this paper.
