In this paper, the author proposes a general theory for synthesizing crank-type (i.e., crank-rocker and double-crank) four-bar function generators in which the transmission angle variation over a full crank revolution is in a specified range. Precision point as well as least-square designs have been considered in the paper. Applications of the theory are illustrated by means of numerical examples.
