An Approach to Tripod Optimization and Remote Manipulation
National Research Council of Canada.
2003 (English)In: Transactions of the North American Manufacturing Research Institution of SME, volume 31, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, North American Manufacturing Research Institution, 2003, Vol. 31, p. 321-328Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The Tripod is one type of parallel kinematic machine having three degrees of freedom. The sliding-leg tripod presented in this paper is designed as a programmable add-on device for manufacturing and shop floor automation. It can be used as a toolhead for machine tools, or as a work stage for coordinate measuring machines. The purpose is to enhance the capability of a machine by providing it with a more flexible range of motion and controllability from any distance. As decentralization of manufacturing grows, shop floor equipment like this is required to become networkable and remotely accessible. This paper focuses on two separate issues: tripod design optimization and remote real-time monitoring and control of the tripod. A web-based prototype is developed to verify the feasibility of the approach as well as the tripod accessibility in a distributed environment. It is shown that the proposed approach can improve the tripod design and its controllability. A large application potential of this approach is also predicted.
