Parallel Kinematics

PKM machines easily carry laser or conventional probes and in combination with the 6-axis, extreme acceleration, and rapid motion, it is possible to fly over, measure, analyze, and adjust programming data in seconds.

The ICON Tripod is capable of machining all sides of a part in one setting without inversion or turning processes, which avoids CpK problems that result from the transfer of components within a machining cell.

Complex machining is completed by one machine rather than several specialized machines. The flexibility and accuracy of a PKM allow the Tripod to machine components completely in one setting while holding extreme tolerances.
