## Spherical Geneva Mechanism

Spherical Geneva mechanism is a type of intermittent motion mechanism. It translates a continuous rotation into intermittent rotary motion. The driver and the driven wheels are on perpendicular shafts. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that reaches into a

## Difference between a machine and a structure

Before we go through the difference between a machine and a structure, let’s first see what they are. Once we comprehend that, understanding the difference between them will be a cakewalk for us. Machine: A machine typically contains mechanisms that

## Linear Geneva Mechanism

Linear Geneva mechanism is a type of intermittent motion mechanism. It translates a continuous rotation into intermittent linear motion. The crank (driver) has a pin that reaches into a slot of the slider. The driver wheel has a raised circular

A deltoid linkage is a four bar mechanism which consists of two pairs of equal and adjacent links. It is a grashof linkage for which the sum of the lengths of the shortest link and the longest link is equal

## Double Crank Mechanism

Double Crank Mechanism is a four bar linkage. In this linkage, both the links pivoted to the fixed link rotates fully. It is a Grashof linkage for which the sum of the lengths of the shortest link and the largest

## Crank Rocker Mechanism

Crank Rocker Mechanism is a four bar linkage. In this linkage, the shortest link rotates fully while the other link pivoted to the fixed link oscillates. It is a Grashof linkage for which the sum of the lengths of the

## What is a Mechanism?

What is a mechanism? A mechanism is a combination of a number of bodies assembled in such a way that the motion of one causes constrained and predictable motion to the others. The purpose of mechanism is to transform motion

## Difference between Machines and Mechanisms

What is a mechanism? A mechanism is a device which transforms motion to some desirable pattern and typically develops very low forces and transmits little power. Some examples of common mechanisms are a pencil sharpner, a camera shutter, an analog
