In the design of automatic machines it is frequently necessary to reproduce a one-way rotary motion by the machines working organs. This motion may consist of segments of constant-velocity motion, periods of stoppage, or a combination of both for a full rotation of the driving element. In this situation, the magnitude of the constant-velocity motion segments and the rest intervals accounts for a considerable portion of the cycle, sometimes as much as 300 degrees and more. This problem is routinely encountered in the design of packing, printing, and other kinds of automatic- and semiautomatic-action machines. In this paper the scope of our study will be limited to an examination of those cam-gear-lever mechanisms which, with a minimum number of elements, ensure large standing angles and large constant-velocity motion angles.
