Kurt Hain (1908–1995)
Dr.-Ing. E. h. Kurt Hain was a pioneer of Applied Kinematics in Germany. He started his scientific career in his native town Leipzig. Between 1936 and 1994 he wrote 13 books and 380 scientific papers and designed 176 mechanism models. He worked in nearly all subfields of kinematics and machinery. There are notions, procedures and methods that are strongly connected with his name. His kinematic heritage for future generations of mechanical engineers is now preserved in the framework of a national research project in Germany, named “DMG-Lib”.
