Paper Abstract

This paper will develop a hybrid robot arm for propeller blade grinding. The grinding work requires a high stiffness robot arm to reduce deformation and vibration. The hybrid robot arm is proposed by combining a parallel and a serial mechanism. The parallel mechanism supports a moving platform by three active and one passive leg so that it provides high stiffness but small workspace. To compensate the small workspace, the serial mechanism, which is the wrist of the robot arm, is mounted in the moving platform. Therefore, the robot arm has the large range of workspace as well as high stiffness.
