One Method of Innovative Design for Planar Mechanisms
The mechanism innovative design plays a quite important role in mechanical product processing. In this paper, a systematic method is proposed, in which restructuring based on the link number, the adding and subtracting links, the topological evaluation and isomeric mechanism are all contained, improving Yan’s Creative Mechanism Design Methodology. More probable, simple, lightweight mechanisms are obtained. An example is cited to illustrate the proposed method.
