A New 3-DOF Translational Parallel Manipulator: Kinematics, Dynamics, Workspace Analysis
A translational parallel manipulator with three degrees of freedom and three kinematic chains is considered. Each kinematic chain contains five revolute joints. Kinematics, workspace, singularities and dynamics of the proposed mechanism are discussed.
