Module 2 : Robots mechanisms
Lecture 6 : Manipulators Mechanisms-III
 Objectives
  In this course you will learn the following
Concept of transmission angles in mechanisms
Coupling of actuator motions
RCC – accommodation of minor errors in alignment
 Transmission Angle
 
Fig 6.1.1
Fig 6.1.2
 
An example of rear pivoted cylinder mechanism. Fig 6.1.1.(above left). No side thrust arises between cylinder
and piston.
Transmission angle of force: important from point of power transmission efficiency and this angle needs to be
checked in mechanisms that are used in robot actuators. Fig 6.1.2.above shows the best and worst scenarios of
transmission angle.

 Coupling of actuator motions
 
 
Figure 6.2.1
 
The mechanism shown in Fig. 6.2 has coupled motion unlike the one in 6.1.1. In the device in Fig. 6.2.1
assume Cyl 1 is locked, the motion of Cyl 2 affects both  . In Fig. 6.1.1 the motion of one actuator
affects only one angle.
 Grippers in manipulators
 
Figure 6.3.1
For assembly easiness RCC type elements are used
between the gripper and wrist. (RCC stands for
remote centre compliance.) The RCC consists of
flexible elements which take care of small variation
in position of End effector while executing an
assembly as shown in figure 6.3.1.
