COMPMECH is a research group belongging to the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), Spain. Its research focuses mainly on the design and analysis of different variants of parallel manipulators – compliant parallel manipulators, reconfigurable parallel manipulators and mechatronics of parallel manipulators.
The research activities of COMPMECH research group are funded by institutional projects and contracts with companies. One of the main targets of the group is to keep in continuous relation with companies of our filed. Collaborating with the industry enables the development of important projects and, in many cases, these projects end up with the design of a prototype of some specific elements or mechanical systems and even with the publication of a patent.
Many students of the Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao collaborate with the group and develop their final projects with it and several members hold doctoral degrees based on their research in the group.
