Abstract

To achieve higher accuracy during the machining process, high rigidity and stability of the machine's structure are necessary. Recently, the Stewart Platform, based on a parallel architecture, has been implemented to design new machine tool structures aimed at high tolerance machining applications. In this paper, considering a number of inaccuracy factors, the first and second order error models for a six DOF Stewart Platform are presented. Furthermore, based on the proposed first order error model, an automated error analysis system which graphically depicts the error distributions through the workspace is also developed and demonstrated.
