Whitworth Quick Return Mechanism


Whitworth Quick Return Mechanism

Model No: AM-028


The Whitworth mechanism is also known as the quick-return mechanism. It represents a revolving crank slider and produces non-uniform stroke movement with slow forward movement and fast backward movement. This mechanism is used in tools, packaging and transport machinery. The unit generates non-uniform stroke movement by means of a Whitworth mechanism. The experimental unit comprises the drive disk with crank and coupling, the driving rod and the cylinder. The angle is adjusted using the crank disk, and an angle scale is integrated into the base plate. A millimeter-precise steel ruler is attached to the cylinder to measure the stroke. The elements are mounted on a base plate. Two handles make it easy to carry and stack the unit.

Bench-top unit.
