Table kinematics, linkage for lifting a table top

Basic kinematics example of a folding dining table. The middle plate in the table shown here is automatically lifted into the center position by four-bar systems on each of the two sides. The two partial systems are kinematically independent of each other.

Kinematics example: friction cone and self-locking

Basic kinematics example for self-locking under force-dependent friction. Friction occurs between a vertical guideway and a fork with a mass in the center of gravity and two contact points on the guideway. This friction is described in each case by a coefficient of friction or a friction value in the two sliding bearings, which, for
