A mechanism approach is presented in this paper to deal with machining errors and model the accuracy of a precision transmission device in connection with kinematic geometry. The 3D motion of a rotor with six DOFs is perfectly represented by a redundant mechanism [1]. Positions and orientations of two rotors are determined by solving the vector equations of the redundant mechanisms at different instants. The geometric properties of loci traced by the characteristic points and lines of the rotors are analyzed. The invariants of the discrete line-trajectories, the image spherical curve and striction curve, are introduced into the accuracy evaluation for the precision transmission device. The rotary table of a machine tool is used as an example to test the proposed model. The results show that the kinematic geometry is advantageous in modeling effects of errors in multiple body mechanical systems.
