Stationary Screws with rotating nuts
This group include machine tool traversing mechanisms, jacks, valve drives etc etc.
These mechanism essentially convert rotary motion to linear motion. High mechanical advantages can result from components which are convenient to design and engineer. The output motions and forces are very easy to evaluate for the input forces.
Stationary Nuts with with rotating screw
This group includes power screw actuators, valve drives, jacks. The characteristics ofthis group is essentially the same as the group with stationary screws and rotating nuts
Single and double acting hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders
This is a massive group including positioning cylinders, rams jacks . The motions andforces are very easy to calculate..The motion involves convertion of potential energy influid to kinetic energy of the motion of the component moved by the cylinder

There are many methods of classifying mechanisms. The following list is a functional listbased on the type of motion required. This list is based on that providedin Theory of Machines and Mechanisms ..Uicker, Pennock, ans Shigley. The notes below arelow level descriptions. Over time additional notes will be included...For detailed analysis and synthesis please refer to the books listed in the book section of this site.
Mechanism Design Analysis And Synthesis
The most obvious example of this type of mechanism is that used to control the valves onand internal combustion engine. The valve has to open, remain open for a fixed part of the cycle,close, and remain close for a fixed part of the cycle. The solutionfor this type of mechanism is to use of cam controlling the motion of the valve stem.
Indexing mechanisms as described in the indexing section can often provide stop and dwell motions.
