Stemming from study of polyhedral and spheroidal linkages and investigation of reciprocating motion of the PRRP chain, this paper presents four overconstrained linkages that are capable of transferring rotations to radially reciprocating motion. The linkages connected by revolute joints are of symmetrical arrangement and mobility one and are analysed by using the screw-loop equation method. The paper further investigates geometry and kinematics of the linkages and reveals their kinematic characteristics, leading to the constraint equation.
