Hoeckens linkage

The Hoeckens linkage[1] is a four-bar mechanism that converts rotational motion to approximate straight-line motion. It is named after Karl Hoecken (1874−1962).[1]

The example to the right spends over half of the cycle in the near straight portion.

The Hoeckens linkage is a cognate linkage of the Chebyshev linkage.

The linkage was first published in 1926.[2][3]
