In this paper, accuracy and stiffness analysis of a 3RRP spherical parallel manipulator (SPM) (Enferadi and Tootoonchi, A novel spherical parallel manipulator: Forward position problem, singularity analysis and isotropy design, Robotica, vol. 27, 2009, pp. 663–676) with symmetrical geometry is investigated. At first, the 3-RRP SPM is introduced and its inverse kinematics analysis is performed. Isotropic design, because of its design superiority, is selected and workspace of the manipulator is obtained. The kinematics conditioning index (KCI) is evaluated on the workspace. Global conditioning index (GCI) of the manipulator is calculated and compared with another SPM. Unlike traditional stiffness analysis, the moving platform is assumed to be flexible. A continuous method is used for obtaining mathematical model of the manipulator stiffness matrix. This method is based on strain energy and Castigliano’s theorem. The mathematical model is verified by finite element model. Finally, using mathematical model, kinematics stiffness index (KSI), and global stiffness index (GSI) are evaluated.
