Design of spatial four-bar mechanisms in which the skew crank axes are at right angles is investigated. Using an algebraic approach, the lengths of the moving links are expressed as functions of a single parameter. Transmission optimization of right-angled four-bar mechanisms can then be determined from the solution of a single parameter constrained optimization problem. When the motion is symmetric, mechanism proportions which yield constant force transmission characteristics can be obtained.
