Motion synthesis of a planar Watt II type six-bar mechanism with two end-effectors
The study deals with motion generation with closed-loop mechanisms with several end-effectors. As a case study a single degree-of-freedom planar Watt II type six-bar mechanism with two end-effectors is worked on. Dyad formulation with complex numbers is made use of for the mathematical model. It is found that the motion synthesis is possible for at most three poses of the two end-effectors. The formulations are illustrated with numerical examples.
