Translational parallel manipulator with Pa2 kinematic joints
The kinematic pair Pa2 is composed of two interlinked parallelograms. It has two degrees of freedom that generate a translational plane variable with position. It has a structure different from the PaPa pair, which is ...
Dynamics and mechanical vibrations. Complementing the theory with virtual simulation and experimental analysis
The purpose of the present work is to show how the complex theory in subjects related to Mechanism and Machine Theory can be reinforced with some practicals in which the students can perform virtual simulation of the ...
Design of an active reconfigurable 2R joint
The increasing flexibility requirements in the manufacturing processes has led to the development of novel reconfigurable mechanisms to be implemented in ma-chine heads and tables. This is the case of the reconfigurable ...
Parallel manipulators: practical applications and kinematic design criteria. Towards the modular reconfigurable robots
Modern robotic manipulators play an essential role in industry, developing several tasks in an easy way, enhancing the accuracy of the final product and reducing the executing time. Also they can be found in other fields ...
Multioperation capacity of parallel manipulators basing on generic kinematic chain approach
The idea of designing multioperation mechanisms capable of performing different tasks has gained prominence in the last years. These mechanisms, commonly called reconfig- urable mechanisms, have the ability to change their ...
