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. This mechanism is used in tools, packaging and
transport machinery. 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. Two handles
make it easy to carry and stack the unit.
