A serial-parallel hybrid robot for machining of complex surfaces

Abstract (Summary)

Machining of complex surfaces (MOCS) is a global technological topic. Many products are designed with complex surfaces to enhance their appearances and/or functions. Although computer numerical control (CNC) systems, serial robots and parallel manipulators are competent in completing MOCS, CNC systems lack flexibility, while serial robots find it difficult to achieve high accuracy and parallel manipulators possess smaller workspace. In an attempt to overcome these problems, this study constructs a hybrid robot to combine the advantages of a serial robot and a parallel manipulator. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
