The Tricept T9000 parallel kinematic machine system from Hartwig can perform milling, drilling, routing, deburring, and finishing; optical inspection and touch probing; fastener/rivet installation; and friction stir welding with just a change of tooling. Coordinated motion between three precision actuators and a two-axis head enables high-speed, high-accuracy interpolation for near-infinite spindle/tool orientation, one-stop fixture/setup efficiencies, internal/external feature machining, and extreme part access. The design mounts the linear actuators and a central structural tube to a gimbal support structure. At the other end, the tripod struts and tube come together in a triangular arrangement around the two-axis rotary head.
