Development of a New Parallel Kinematics Machine Tool

  • Zoltán Stankóczi


Development of the computer techniques has made possible the application of a new machine tool construction, the parallel kinematics. Hexapod robots can be used in several fields of the manufacturing and robotics. On the TU Budapest, Department of Manufacturing Engineering, we have developed a new 3 leg-parallel kinematics machine tool, we described the mathematical model of the kinematics, and completed the design necessary for the production. This paper gives summary about the parallel kinematics and our development activity.
