Profile Synthesis of Planar Rotational–Translational Variable Joints
Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics
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.
