Abstract

This paper introduces the theoretical design of reconfigurable machine tools using modular design approach. First, the general concept of modular robot and its growing need is introduced. Second, the design of reconfigurable parallel kinematic machines is discussed and the geometric modeling of such figures is presented and explained, and potential applications are described. Finally, a case study for proposed structure is conducted for its kinematic modeling and design optimization and some results are concluded.
