Example illustrating the kinematic analysis and interactive optimization of a toggle switch using the kinematics software ASOM v7.
In this example the operating forces for a toggle switch are analyzed. Different cases are analyzed at the same time in the same project:
- switching on without friction
- switching off without friction
- switching on with simplified friction
- switching off with simplified friction
The subsequent manual optimization of the operating forces by changing the contour takes into account all four cases at the same time and is still very easily accomplished.
