Aiming at a 5-DOF hybrid optical mirror polishing robot, the explicit dynamic model considering the joint friction is established and the inertia coupling distribution is studied. Firstly, the kinematics of the manipulator is solved based on closed-loop vector method, and the dynamic model is established with Newton-Euler method based on the force analysis of manipulator components. Secondly, the kinematic parameters of the reference point of the moving platform are selected as the intermediate variables, and the explicit dynamic model of the parallel manipulator is obtained by parameters substitution considering the friction effects of spherical joints, universal joints and ball screws. Finally, on the basis of the dynamic model, the inertia coupling strength evaluation index for active branched-chains is proposed, and the distribution law of the coupling strength in a certain trajectory and workspace is studied. The results show that the inertia coupling strength indices between active branched-chains vary with the manipulator position and are symmetrically distributed in the workspace. This paper provides a theoretical basis for the joint controller design and structural parameter optimization of the polishing robot.
