    * The travel ranges of the individual coordinates (X, Y, Z, θX, θY, θZ) are interdependent. The data for each axis in this table shows its maximum
    travel, where all other axes are at their zero positions. If the other linear or rotational coordinates are not zero, the available travel may be less.

  • Let's go back to first principles. What, exactly, are you trying to accomplish? What are your requirements? Specifically, what are your requirements for this stage of the research, regarding:
    Price?
    Payload?
    Range of Motion?
    Strength (that is, how much torque and/or force will this robot have to apply, above and beyond what it uses to carry its payload?)
    Operating conditions?
    Power source?
    Programming language/toolchain? This is, how complex will this programming be, and what tool chain do you expect to use to create said programs? What programming languages are you already capable of supporting?
    Interfacing? What other hardware will this robot have to communicate/coordinate with? Using what means?
    Feedback? Will you be using digital, analog, polled, realtime, etc? How mission-critical will this interfacing be?


    A 6-axis Parallel Kinematic Machine (PKI) has a great deal of accuracy and strength, but at the cost of reach, felxibility, and range of motion. PKIs also have more complex kinematic models, which by extension can often mean more expensive and harder-to-use controllers. A PKI might not be necessary for what you are trying to accomplish. Or, it might be overkill for the initial proof-of-concept stage of your research.


    It's also going to be harder to find experienced help with most PKIs, simply because they're rare, compared to regular "articulated" robot arms, and hence the pool of experienced users is smaller. I can only speak to PKIs very generally, having only used a few quite briefly in my career.
