A general algorithm for the kinematic synthesis of Geneva mechanisms with curved slots is introduced here, when a suitable displacement program is given with the aim of avoiding the typical shock-loading problems of conventional Geneva mechanisms. Moreover, the effects of the design parameters are analyzed through significant numerical examples. These parameters are: number of driving cranks; number of slots; imposed displacement program; and pin radius of the driving crank for the Geneva mechanism.

Abstract

A general algorithm for the kinematic synthesis of Geneva mechanisms with curved slots is introduced here, when a suitable displacement program is given with the aim of avoiding the typical shock-loading problems of conventional Geneva mechanisms. Moreover, the effects of the design parameters are analyzed through significant numerical examples. These parameters are: number of driving cranks; number of slots; imposed displacement program; and pin radius of the driving crank for the Geneva mechanism.
