This paper presents a novel two-degree-of-freedom (DOF) translational parallel robot for high-speed applications named the IRSBot-2 (acronym for IR CCyN S patial Robot with 2 DOF). Unlike most two-DOF robots dedicated to planar translational motions, this robot has two spatial kinematic chains which confers a very good intrinsic stiffness. First, the robot architecture is described. Then, its actuation and constraint singularities are analyzed. Finally, the IRSBot-2 is compared to its two-DOF counterparts based on elastostatic performances.
