THREE-LINK SCREW-TYPE MECHANISM WITH TURNING AND SLIDING PAIRS

Link 1 is connected by turning pair A to the fixed link and by sliding pair B to link 2 which, in turn, is connected by screw pair C to the fixed link. Link 1 has a prismatic hole in which prismatic shank a of link 2 slides. Rotation of link 1 is converted into screw motion of link 2. When link 1 is turned through the angle ϕ₁, the displacement of link 2 along axis x-x is s₂=h_C(ϕ₁/(2π)) where h_…
