Abstract

This paper presents a novel linkage design approach that satisfies kinematic design requirements and also attains dynamic balance for four-bar linkages. By properly designing the speed trajectory of the input link, the balancing parameters of moving links, and link dimensions of the given or desired mechanisms, the expected output motion characteristics and dynamic balancing performance are obtained. The input motion characteristics are designed with Bezier curves. Optimization is applied to find optimal design parameters for reaching an almost complete dynamic balance that involves a balance among shaking force, shaking moments, bearing reaction forces, and driving torque fluctuation. Examples are given to demonstrate the design procedure of this approach.
