Abstract:Fully automating the assembly of laser systems puts high demands on the accuracy, but alike on the flexibility and adaptivity of the assembly system. In this paper a concept for a flexible robot-based precision assembly is introduced. This concept is based on a modular 6-axis alignment tool which has been designed as a hybrid serial-parallel manipulator with flexures for all revolute and spherical joints. Technical insights on the design and dimensioning based on analytical calculations will be presented as we… Show more
