This paper is devoted to the kinematic and sensitivity analyses of a new designed toggle mechanisms which is the combination of two slider-crank mechanism. The analytic analysis is developed for obtaining the general equations of position, velocity, and acceleration for each link. Three common types of motion including constant acceleration, simple harmonic and cycloidal are considered as the inputs while the corresponding outputs between two toggle positions are studied. By using geometric relationships and trigonometry, the various results of kinematic and sensitivity analyses are presented and compared between the four-point type and five-point type toggle mechanism.
