A theory is proposed for the synthesis of bimodal function generators which are free from the branch defect. It is applicable to planar as well as spatial linkages. Precision type synthesis has been considered for planar four-bar and spatial R-S-S-R linkages. Applications of the theory are illustrated by means of numerical examples.
