Paper Title:
A 3-DOF Parallel Manipulator Based 5-Axis Parallel Kinematics Machine Tool
  Abstract

Though computer technology has brought about virtual manufacturing to expedite design and analysis through simulation and visualization, machines remain essential, as ultimately products need to be made. This paper presents a new type of 5-axis parallel machine tool based on a 3 degrees of freedom parallel platform manipulator with base mounted prismatic actuators. This machine tool is different from the Stewart platform type parallel machine tool in that its feed motion in X-direction is realized by the worktable on which work-piece is fixed and the parallel manipulator sliding on the gantry structure of the machine tool is responsible for the translation along Y-direction instead of the movable platform of the manipulator. Due to this special architecture, the workspace in X-direction and Y-direction of the new machine tool is enlarged greatly. And its rigidity is higher because of the adaptation of gantry structure. This machine tool is controlled by a PC based NC system in simultaneous 5 axes control mode.
