Abstract: The well-established methodology for slider-crank function generation states that five precision points can be achieved without structural error. The resulting designs, however, do not necessarily satisfy all of the kinematic requirements for designing a slider-crank linkage used in common machine applications such as driving the ram of a mechanical press. First, linkage solutions to the five precision point synthesis problem may need to change circuits to reach the precision points. Second, there is no guaran…
