MODELING AND KINEMATICS SIMULATION OF PLANE TEN-BAR MECHANISM OF WARP KNITTING MACHINE BASED ON SIMCAPE/MULTIBODY
A kinematics simulation model was established for the driven-latch needle of warp knitting machine, and the simulation was implemented by using SimMultibody. Thus, the simulation curves of displacement, velocity and acceleration for a certain key point of the mechanism were obtained. The modeling analysis is implemented for a certain mechanical system. The results show that this method is convenient, efficient and powerful. It provides a theoretical foundation and a better analytical approach of simulation for the design and analysis of complex multilinkage mechanisms.
