In today's age of technical and technological development, the market requires many products, with an emphasis not only on price but also on quality. To meet these requirements, new technologies and production processes are constantly being developed. These technologies and processes lead to modernization of equipment, the purpose of which is to increase production efficiency and productivity. The ever-increasing expectations of economic development place demands on labour productivity, accuracy, quality, reliability, and create a large room for application of various transmission systems. These demands may be met by using advanced technologies in combination with upgraded original equipment and mechanisms. The focus of this article is on the mechanisms that work on the principles of bending member, enabling their rapid prototyping. This paper contributes to the topic with design of bending mechanisms and with the subsequent simulation of the functionality and evaluation of the respective results.
