Abstract

This paper presents an approach to the profile synthesis of planar, variable joints by combining higher variable joints. The possible permutations of planar, variable joints that change from a rotational to translational motion will be enumerated. A method will be provided to determine the profiles of variable joints, and a practical example will be presented to illustrate the proposed method.
