- To determine the loci of the moving parts of the standard mechanism
- To establish the characteristics of that mechanism: for example to see which links move faster than other or whether a particular motion (such as a straight line) is developed
One of sixteen mechanisms built on an A3 board equally suitable for the classroom, drawing office or laboratory. The principal components are made from amber coloured Perspex, pivoted with hollow rivets, and mounted on a white melamine board for contrast and visibility. To see the mechanisms move is far more instructive and convincing than listening to a static lecture. The hollow rivets accept a pencil for transferring the loci of the joints to a sheet of paper, clipped to the board.
This mechanism is designed to improve the productivity of a cutting machine by returning the tool at a faster rate than the work stroke. The length of stroke is also a variable depending on the length of the link OC. The tool is carried on the sliding ram in the guides and is driven by the link AB.
This equipment is part of a range designed to both demonstrate and experimentally confirm basic engineering principles. Great care has been given to each item so as to provide wide experimental scope without unduly complicating or compromising the design. Each piece of apparatus is self-contained and compact. Setting up time is minimal, and all measurements are made with the simplest possible instrumentation, so that the student involvement is purely with the engineering principles being taught.
Each mechanism is supplied with a manual which gives full instructions for producing the loci and applications of the assembly. The typical graphical result is appended
