It's also home to the trigger housing and bullpup-style (action behind the trigger) parallel linkage trigger, which features Metal Injection Molded (MIM) components and an advertised pull of 3 pounds.
Since that time, any parallel linkage mechanisms are referred to as "Stewart platforms", although Gough discovered this mechanism before him.
* Equipped with Volvo's patented Torque Parallel Linkage (TP-Link age), combining high breakout torque and excellent parallel action through the lifting range
And Volvo's largest two of five compact loaders have "Torque Parallel" linkage, which Comrie says offers the breakout force of Z-bar linkage plus the benefits of parallel linkage. "You get maximum breakout force all the way through the lifting arc--and the linkage can apply more power on the tilt cylinder for rolling back loaded log forks, for example," says Comrie.
The machine's Torque Parallel linkage delivers high breakout torque throughout the entire range, including the highest lift position.
The Torque Parallel linkage gives both the Volvo L45F and Volvo L50F smooth, parallel lift, high rollback torque and excellent lifting power throughout the lift range.
The patented Torque Parallel Linkage (TP-Linkage) combines high breakout torque and excellent parallel action throughout the entire lifting range.
With a compact footprint, optimized counterweight, parallel linkages, stiff axes and fewer drive motors, the IRB 8700 keeps its momentum down and speed up, providing unmatched agility and performance."
The Volvo patented Torque Parallel (TP) linkage combines the benefits of Z-bar and Parallel linkages in one system, delivering good parallel movement and high break-out force, even in the highest lift position.
I visit places where these things don't exist, and there are parallel linkages to greater racism, the suppression of women's rights, environmental degradation.
Certain parts of the space agency followed a traditionalist policy of streamlining, while other segments of NASA adopted the Landau perspective by generating new parallel linkages. Yet (as I shall show), both these decisions were wrong and contributed to the untimely destruction of the Challenger.
It is not surprising, therefore, that many scholars in this area have spurned serial systems and focused, instead, on parallel linkages when discussing this issue.
