Front End Loader Mechanism
Transcript of Front End Loader Mechanism
Snow to clear streets and parking lots Lift:
Dirt when constructing sidewalks and streets Transport:
Heavy objects at construction sites Linkage Mechanisms Types of Linkage Mechanisms Truss: Commonly used in bridges, a truss structure has a high strength to weight ratio Four-bar Linkage: "The simplest closed-loop linkage is the four bar linkage which has four members, three moving links, one fixed link and four pin joints" Crank-slider: "The purpose of the slider-crank mechanism is to convert the linear motion of the piston to rotational motion of the crankshaft. One common application of this mechanism is in internal combustion engines." Definition: A system of rigid links connected to create a closed system that creates a specific motion Four-bar Linkage Crank-slider Parts usually attached to tractors
has long arms
connected by several linkage mechanisms
