WHIPgroup successfully appealed all rejections of a patent application for a parallel kinematics robot with integrated transmission. The Examiner had rejected the claims as being obvious over the combination of three references. On appeal, WHIPgroup argued that the cited art failed to teach a robot base being one piece in homogenous material. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) was persuaded by WHIPgroup’s arguments and found the Examiner’s analysis of the prior art erroneous. Accordingly, the PTAB reversed the rejections, and the application is expected to issue in due course.
