Kinematic Modeling and Error Analysis for a 3DOF Parallel-Link Coordinate Measuring Machine
First, the forward kinematic model, the inverse kinematic model and the error model of a kind of coordinate measuring machine (CMM) using 3-DOF parallel-link mechanism are established based on the spatial mechanics theory and the total differential method, and the error model is verified by computer simulation. Then, the influence of structural parameter errors on probe position errors is systematically considered. This research provides an essential theoretical basis for increasing the measuring accuracy of the parallel-link coordinate measuring machine. It is of particular importance to develop the prototype of the new measuring equipment.
