The Whitworth mechanism is also known as the quick-return mechanism. It represents a
revolving crank slider and produces non-uniform stroke movement with slow forward
movement and fast backward movement. The SMT-TM-03 unit generates non-uniform
stroke movement by means of a Whitworth mechanism. The experimental unit comprises
the drive disk with crank and coupling, the driving rod and the cylinder. The angle is adjusted
using the crank disk, and an angle scale is integrated into the base plate. A millimeter-precise
steel ruler is attached to the cylinder to measure the stroke. The elements are mounted on
a base plate.
