Overview: Several applications in the field of production automation require high operating speed and accelerations. The main goal of SFB 562 is to develop robots based on closed kinematic chains (so called parallel robots) and to improve the structural and dynamic potential of these robots. The main focus is the modeling and control of the parallel structures and the consequent use of new machine elements. The integration of active elements into the light links of the parallel structures and a suitable control concept forms an adaptronic compound system, which avoids oscillation. By means of adaptronic it is possible to improve the dynamic and the stiffness of parallel structures. Two prototypes of parallel manipulator were built at the center, namely a HEXA parallel robot and PAROS 4.
