Shaking forces and shaking moments in high-speed machines and manipulators are a significant cause of base vibrations. These vibrations can be eliminated by designing the manipulator to be shaking-force balanced and shaking-moment balanced, or in short: dynamically balanced. The design and experimental results of a high-speed dynamically balanced parallel manipulator are presented, showing the potential of dynamic balance for machine design
