Abstract: A robotic manipulator for supporting a tool or workpiece, the manipulator including at least one rotary linear actuator adapted to be supported by a base and providing for controlled movement of a manipulator link with two degrees of freedom. The robotic manipulator includes a link assembly having one end spherically joined to a movable member for supporting the movable member, the movable member being adapted to support a tool or workpiece. The link assembly is articulated, and the opposite end of the link assembly is supported by a rotary linear actuator for linear movement in a direction transverse to a longitudinal axis of the opposite end of the link assembly and for rotational movement about the axis defined by that linear movement.

First Claim:
Show all 22 claims
We claim:     1. A robotic manipulator adapted to be supported by a base and for supporting a load for selective controlled movement, the robotic manipulator comprising:
  • a movable member adapted to support a load for selective controlled movement,
  • a first link means having opposite ends, one of said ends of said first link means being movably joined to said movable member for supporting said movable member, and the opposite end of said first link means including a longitudinal axis,
  • a rotary linear actuator adapted to be supported by the base and supporting the opposite end of said first link means, said rotary linear actuator including means for supporting said opposite end of said first link means for movement in the direction of a second axis, said second axis being transverse to said longitudinal axis, means for causing linear movement of said opposite end of said first link means in the direction of the second axis, the means for causing linear movement of the opposite end of the first link means being adapted to be supported by the base and means for causing pivotal movement of said opposite end of said first link means about said second axis, the means for causing pivotal movement of said opposite end of the first link means being adapted to be supported by the base independently of the means for causing linear movement of the opposite end of the first link means.
