Abstract: This paper presents the inverse and direct kinematics analysis and experimental study of a parallel manipulator of multi-axial simulation table (MAST). The numerical simulation was used to predict the workspace analysis and path planning hydraulic cylinder advancement and the workspace of the center of MAST. Following the numerical simulations, the results were compared with experimental measurements. The results indicate that the numerical and 3D CAD kinematic simulation results show good compatibility with experimental measurements obtained from MAST.
