Analysis of Whitworth Quick Return Mechanism using ANSYS

Rupanshu Singh


Machines minimizes the effort and complete the work. They produce motion, by working on a specific mechanism. Machines in workshops like shaper machine works on the Whitworth quick return mechanism. It comprises the assemblage of cranks and sliders to convert rotatory motion into reciprocating motion. The aim of this report is to demonstrate the Whitworth mechanism by generating a virtual model and analyzing the motion of the setup. The velocity, acceleration, and force generated by the slider is determined and conclusion is provided for the application of mechanism for industrial purpose and providing a substitute for expensive automated machines used in packaging industries.
