The paper gives a basic division of planar mechanisms especially lifting mechanisms. It deals with the analysis of the lifting mechanism of a cartridge. The mechanism is first analyzed analytically using the vector method. The equations of the motion are assembled. Subsequently, the lifting mechanism model is simulated in MSC Adams. The result of the analysis is the graphical representation of calculated kinematic quantities, their dependencies and the evaluation of the results.
