When linkage mechanisms are designed to generate exact straight lines the level of complexity increases as compared to the mechanisms designed to generate approximate straight line paths. The first exact straight line generating mechanism was invented by a French army officer Charles Nicolas Peaucellier in There are many mechanisms based on slider crank linkage which can generate exact straight lines for limited intervals.

Peaucellier Exact Straight Line Mechanism Peaucellier linkage can convert an input circular motion to the exact straight line motion. The construction of this mechanism is such that the point which is connected to the crank moves in a circular path and the point traversing the straight line is selected as the output point.

The linkage has a rhombic loop formed of the equal lenght members, 5, 6, 7 and 8. Two equal length length links are connected to the opposite corners of the rhombus at one end and to a common fixed point at the other ends. The point A of the rhombus is connect to fixed point O2 through the link 2. The length of the link 2 is equal to the distance between points O2 and O4. By the constraints of the geometry point A moves in a circular path and as the point A moves in a circle point P traverses an exact straight line path normal to the line joining O2 and O4.

From the construction of the Peaucellier linkage it is clear that this is a much more complex mechanism than the mechanisms generating approximate straight lines, which were simple four bar linkages. This mechanism has eight members and six joints. Scott-Russell Exact Straight Line Mechanism The complexity of the mechanisms to generate exact straight lines can be reduced by introduction of one or more slider crank linkages.

It is possible to generate an exact straight line using the slider crank mechanism but the range of motion is limited. One such example is Scott-Russell Mechanism as shown in the figure. Based on the geometry of the linkage the output motion is a simple sine function of the drive link or a simple harmonic motion. It is evident from the figure that this mechanism is made up of isosceles triangles, AB, AC and AO2 are of equal lengths.

These mechanisms are governed by Kinematics — the study of geometry and motion.

## Exact Straight Line Mechanisms – Peaucellier linkage and Scott-Russell Mechanism

Resources and Help Analysis and synthesis Peaucellier mechanism Abstract: A straight line motion is a common application in engineering design and manufacture. The Peaucellier mechanism generates exact straight lines, meeting some restrictions among their links dimensions and the input angle. The mechanism has eight links, but due to those initial restrictions, only requires to find relations among three of its eight links and rotation angle. This paper explains the process employed to find those relations using mechanism singular configurations, used to determine its links operational ranges, maximum displacement and rotation angle. Firstly, two computer programs were developed taking in account the equations obtained from the kinematic analysis. One of them simulates the mechanism motion and the other one locates every point on the straight line.
