Flipping mechanism 1

This mechanism can turn over a flat piece by driving two four-bar linkage from one double crank. The two flippers are actually extensions of the fourth member of the four- bar linkage.

Link proportions are selected so that both flippers rise up at the same time to meet a line slightly off the vertical to transfer the piece from one flipper to the other by momentum of the piece.
