Kinematics and Kinetostatic Analysis of a New Type of Mechanical Excavator with Controllable Mechanism
A new type of mechanical excavator is introduced in this paper aiming at solving the problems the traditional mechanical excavators and hydraulic excavators have respectively, which are lack of flexibility and hydraulic leaks. The analysis of the proposed novel excavator is carried out including: configuration, kinematics, force analysis, and kinetostatic analysis. Based on the equilibrium equations, the counterpoise torque, reaction force and variation of each joint are obtained for given input variables and external load. A simulation study is also proposed.
