The paper presents singularity-free fully-isotropic T1R2-type parallel manipulators (PMs) with three degrees of freedom. The mobile platform has one independent translation (T1) and two rotations (R2). A method is proposed for structural synthesis of fully-isotropic T1R2-type PMs based on the theory of linear transformations. A one-to-one correspondence exists between the actuated joint velocity space and the external velocity space of the moving platform. The Jacobian matrix mapping the two vector spaces of fully-isotropic T1R2-type PMs presented in this paper is the 3x3 identity matrix throughout the entire workspace. The condition number and the determinant of the Jacobian matrix being equal to one, the manipulator performs very well with regard to force and motion transmission capabilities. As far as we are aware, this paper presents for the first time in the literature solutions of singularity-free T1R2-type PMs with decoupled an uncoupled motions, along with the fully-isotropic solutions.
