Abstract. In mechanical designs which are to perform linear or rotary motion, there are forces resulting from the system inertia, speed, velocity of moving parts, friction resistance, etc. Therefore, the essence of modern design lies in predicting, in as much as possible, all the phenomena impacting the design and simulating them appropriately with the use of the available numerical tools. This paper presents both the modelling and kinematic and dynamic analyses for a mechanism blocking the linear movement of a slider connected to a movable element weighing approx. 1000 kg. The structure of the locking mechanism, essentially composed of two moving parts joined with the sliding element, was analysed. The developed mechanism consists in the use of moving parts to eliminate backlash (play), which during long-term operation, would be a disadvantage and lead to excessive dynamic forces and structural failure. The studies were performed in the “dynamic analysis” environment of the Inventor Professional 2021 3D CAD software.
