Slotted Link Mechanism
The slotted link mechanism (MBM1), designed by EDIBON, is an example of a quick-return mechanism.
This mechanism is a combination of an inversion of the slider-crank chain and slider block.
The unit is assembled in an anodized aluminum profile structure, with steel painted panel.
The MBM1 is a mechanism able to transform circular movement into reciprocating movement. It is made of aluminum and consists of a rotary element (graduated disk), called crank, connected to a rigid bar, called connecting rod. When rotating the crank, the connecting rod moves back and forward. The rotation motion of a crank or crankshaft causes a rectilinear reciprocating motion of a piston or plunger.
It is a reversible system through which the connecting rod can be displaced by turning the crank and the other way round. If the connecting rod generates the input motion (as a piston in a cars engine does), the crank is obliged to rotate.
