This paper will introduce two degrees of freedom gantry type mechanisms with parallel actuation. The combination of these mechanisms will lead to a manipulator which enables the Schönflies motion (SCARA type motion). The advantages of the newly obtained mechanism are underlined by mathematical modelling. The geometry and kinematic parameters are defined by the author and some numerical results are presented.
