Kinematic Analysis and Synthesis of Geneva Mechanism Combined with Elliptic Gear
When the slot number of geneva is fixed, the kinematic coefficient of common geneva mechanism is a fixed value, too. Using the elliptic gear mechanism as the drive crank of the Geneva, the variable transmission ratio of the elliptic gear mechanism is utilized, which makes the kinematic characteristic of the geneva mechanism changed. A synthesis method of combined geneva mechanism is put forward according to the kinematic coefficients in this paper. The calculation methods of the maximum and minimum kinematic coefficient are proposed. The parameters of the combined geneva mechanism are presented, which the middle position of the kinematic range of the geneva has approximate constant velocity characteristics.
