Dynamic Design for a Novel Parallel Kinematic Machine with Passive Linkage


Article Preview

Based on the proposed 4PUS-1RPU parallel mechanism a 5-axis Parallel Kinematic Machine (PKM) scheme has been developed and the dynamic characteristics of the PKM have been investigated in detail. To avoid the intensive computation caused by finite element analysis in the research, two typical metamodeling techniques of Response Surface Methodology (RSM) and its artificial neural network enhanced technique were employed as the robust design approaches. Comparing the results obtained from the direct RSM the modeling accuracy by the artificial neural network enhanced RSM can be improved.
