... balanced. In the proposed method, the parameters of the GSB are derived from solving the identity problem of perfect static balancing. The significance of this method is that it enables the GSB to handle variable payloads via energy-free adjustment and allows the selection of spring stiffness...

... ungrounded springs. The force–deflection characteristic of this linkage architecture showed statically balanced behavior in both symmetric and asymmetric actuation. Using modal analysis, it was shown that the sum of the decomposed strain energy per buckling mode is constant throughout the motion range...

...Chin-Hsing Kuo; Vu Linh Nguyen; Daniel Robertson; Lin-Tien Chou; Just L. Herder This paper presents the static balancing design of a special reconfigurable linkage that can switch between two one-degree-of-freedom (DoF) working configurations. We will show that the studied dual-mode linkage only...

...Jorge A. Franco; Juan A. Gallego; Just L. Herder A design approach for the quasi-static balancing of four-bar linkages with torsion springs is proposed. Such an approach is useful in the design of quasi-statically balanced fully compliant mechanisms by tuning the stiffness of the pseudo-rigid-body...
