Symmetric Beauty: Press Based on Reconfigurable Toggle Mechanism Driven by Pneumatic Muscle
In this paper, two different diameter pneumatic muscle, combined with reconfigurable toggle mechanism, three kinds of press has been innovated, the working principle of the press are introduced, its calculating formulae of output power are also given,and the force amplifier coefficient were compared. The large-diameter pneumatic muscle will be used for the working stroke of the pressure travel, while the small-diameter pneumatic muscle will be used for the return travel.The press can satisfy the requirement of different output force and different structure size, no pollution, adapted to the greening trend, there is broad application prospects.
