The Four-Bar Mechanism, "MCA", designed by EDIBON, is a bench-top unit to perform laboratory experiments.
It is made of anodized aluminum and consists of two rotary elements (graduated discs) mounted on ball bearings. The discs include a scaleto measure the input and output angles accurately with the aid of a methacrylate indicator.
The rotary motion of one of the discs is transferred through the bars and generates the rotary motion of the other disc.
The bars, made of anodized aluminum, can be connected at different lengths using easy to fit knurled bolts.
