A novel approach that integrates the kinematic synthesis, dynamic design and servo control in one design stage is presented for designing four-bar linkages with external applied loads. This approach satisfies kinematic design requirements and constraints and also attains trade-off of dynamic balance. 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. And, the input motion characteristics are designed with Bezier curves. Optimization is aided to find out optimal design parameters for achieving kinematic and dynamic design requirements and constraints. The speed trajectory of the input link could be generated by a servomotor. Examples are given to demonstrate the feasibility of this approach.
