Abstract

Linkages are presented which generate straight-line motion of a rigid body. Typical mechanisms of this type (e.g. scissors lift or pantograph) have fixed pivots beneath the moving platform. The linkages presented here have remotely located fixed pivots and allow a range of platform motion which extends both above and beneath the line of the fixed pivots. Both exact and approximate solutions are presented, based on the Peaucellier straight-line linkage, and a synthesis example is given.
