Gear Based Quick Return Mechanism

Download Project Document/Synopsis



A Quick Return Mechanism is a mechanical assembly to create a reciprocating motion which is so designed to reduce ideal time required for return stroke. It is a four bar mechanism comprised of fixed link, crank, pin sliding in the slot and a sliding pair. Electric motor runs the driving pinion at a uniform speed. Pinion transmits its motion to gear. Gear has a pin on its surface which is confined to slide inside slot of crank. At the point when the gear nears a full revolution, the arm achieves its farthest position and comes back to its initial position at a faster rate, thus its name. It has many applications such as Shaper, Power driven saw, mechanical actuator and many more.
