Dimension synthesis for higher-order kinematic parameters is a method to realize higher motion accuracy and to control the motion characteristics of planar linkage mechanisms. In this paper, taking a two-output impulse generator as an example, the construction of dimension synthesis equations for higher-order kinematic parameters and their solutions were carried out in four steps. In addition, to realize the self-adjustability of planar linkage mechanisms, a novel non-overconstraint basic bar group method was established to eliminate the overconstraint present in the mechanisms, which forms obstacles to planar motions. A prototype of a two-output impulse generator was produced based on the synthesis and self-adjustability design. Experimental results showed that fluctuation range of the output velocity of the two-output impulse generator was reduced by 10.3 % in comparison with a conventional impulse generator and a more steady motion was achieved, indicating the reliable motion accuracy and self-adjustability.
