Slider driving an RPR Dyad
|1.||We design a Motion to move a gripper in time with the rest of the machine.|
|2.||A Slide-Joint is added to define the direction of motion for the gripper. |
|3.||The gripper is mounted to a sliding block and it slides along a slide rail.|
|4.||A Pin is mounted in the gripper – shown in blue. This is an R Joint of the Dyad|
|5.||A link – in red – is mounted to pivot on the machine frame. This is an R Joint.|
|6.||The pin is mounted in a slot cut into the red link – the P joint.|
A 2D-Cam, (groove cam) drives the red link.
A Design-Set was used to improve the initial layout of the kinematic-chain.
