Abstract

In this paper, kinematic analysis and design of constant force mechanisms which employ a linear spring are studied. Firstly, sufficient conditions for the mechanisms to be the constant force mechanisms are derived in terms of displacement variables through the kinematic analysis. Secondly, a few conceptual mechanisms satisfying these constraints are proposed.
