The paper deals with the kinematic analysis of a manipulator mechanism. The matrix method of kinematic analysis is used for the solution. The robot's mechanism is an open kinematic chain. The vector of position, velocity and acceleration is determined. The problem is solved using Matlab and MSC Adams / View. The Matlab program is used to solve kinematics equations in symbolic form. Computer software reduces the design time and also brings economic benefits. Conditions are being created for faster research and the creation of new mechanical systems gradually appearing in the production area. Computer simulation can also serve an educational purpose and givingadditional information about the mechanical systems through simulation and kinematic analysis.
