      Can anyone explain how the mechanism shown in the photo (please watch the video attached) is designed? I just dont understand how the part is locked in its axis. Also, i see there is a slot on the assembly and hence I dont think they can use bearings on the ends, correct?

      I'm not 100% sure I get what you're asking, but if it's what I think, there looks like there's a bevel gear at the right portion of the rotating part. Locking the motor that drives it would lock the motion.
      I also don't see why they couldn't use bearings or bushings.
