Linear Motion with Quick Return


Design a quick return mechanism having linear motion during the forward portion of the cycle.


Drive the quick return mechanism with elliptical unilobes, as shown. If linearity is required in both directions, elliptical bilobes could be used. Absolute linearity may be achieved using a pair of special function non-circular gears.
