The technological (geometrical) deviations of component elements of the cardan joint mechanism lead to the changine of kinematic parameters of the mechanism. For determining the influence of both angular and axis deviations, over the kinematic parameters of the cardan joint mechanism, it is necessary to consider the cardan joint, not as a spherical quadrilateral but as a particular case of RCCC mechanism where by C, R was noted the cylindrical kinematic pair respectively the rotation kinematic pair. In this paper is etablished the calculation algorithm for determining kinematic parameters of the cardan joint mechanism with technical (geometrical) deviations at component elements.
Keywords: cardan joint, geometrical deviations, kinematic pair.
