Summary: Using algebraic techniques an algorithm to detect new overconstrained 6R-mechanisms is developed. Many of the known overconstrained mechanisms were found rather synthetically or intuitively than by analytical methods. Within the last years analytical methods were used also to find more such mechanisms. With help of this algorithm a whole family of new overconstrained 6R-mechanisms is found. Some members of this family were already known before.
