Abstract

The conveyor mechanism (working in a plan) to be presented in this study is a classic case of manipulating conveyor, simply with a single degree of mobility. It is a very common mechanism used in classical mechanics, being encountered at lifting platforms, at handicapped chairs, at cranes, forklifts, automatic machines and machines, or at older steam locomotives where it having the role of reversing the rotation-translation movement. Being a simple, common manipulator, he is also a good teaching example, much used in the student courses of mechanics, mechanisms, robotics-mechatronics. That is why we want to present in this study in a concise way the geometry and the kinematics of this mechanism. There will be a constructive and one kinematic scheme. The mechanism consists of a crank (a motor element 1), an RRR dyad composed of elements 2 and 3 and an RRT dyad formed by kinematic elements 4 and 5. The motor element 1 has a complete rotation (360 degrees) being the single driving feature of the entire mechanism. The element 3 is a bar that links the engine element 1 to the rocker element 2. From the rocker element 2, the movement is forwarded through the rod 4 to the final execution member 5, which is a slider (patina), having the role of oscillating linearly (it can also be a piston in a cylinder). The mechanism can also be used by changing the driving element to the driven one so as to become a motor mechanism with the leading element 5 and when the rotation element 1 to become a final driven element. Thus it can be used as a mechanism for producing the movement and transmitting it with the conversion from the rotation to translation movement. We intend to present this mechanism, in the present paper, when it functions as a manipulator, having the motor element 1 and the final element, the execution element, the patina 5. Special emphasis will be placed on the kinematics of the mechanism, studied on elements, but also on structural groups. Obviously there will be presented and some applications of the mechanism.
