Abstract

The characteristics of linear transmission mechanisms are studied. Using the characteristics, the kinematic and synthesis of linear transmission mechanisms are expanded. First, the synthesis of mechanisms with prismatic joints in the equivalent open-loop chain is developed. Then the kinematics and synthesis of mechanisms with coupled joint motion are also derived. Two coupled mechanisms are used as examples to demonstrate the application potential in the industry.
