Design Basics

Principles of Linear Motion Newtons First Law If the net force acting on an object is zero: l An object at rest tends to remain at rest l An object in motion tends to remain in motion. Velocity = Distance / Time (ft/sec; miles/hr) Acceleration = Velocity / Time (ft/sec/sec or ft/sec 2 )

Principles of Linear Motion Newtons Second Law If the net force acting on an object is not zero: l Object will accelerate in proportion to, and in the direction of, the net force, l Object will accelerate in inverse proportion to its mass. Force = Mass x Acceleration This implies: For swifter response l More Powerful prime movers (motors, pumps) must be used l Total weight of object must be minimized

Principles of Rotary Motion Torque = Force x Radius Torque = Belt Pull x Radius Units: (lb.in.; lb.ft.)

Principles of Work Work = Force x Distance Units: (in.lb; ft.lb.) NOTE: The distance traveled is independent of the Radius.

Power / Horsepower hp = (Q ft )(rpm) / 5252 hp = (Q in )(rpm) / 63025 Power = Work / Time 1 Horsepower = 550 ft.lb./sec. Where: hp = Horsepower rpm = rev. per minute Q ft = Torque (lb.ft.) Q in = Torque (lb.in.)

Torque / Speed Relationships For a Constant HP Load: Torque Increases as Speed Decreases OR Torque Decreases as Speed Increases This implies: If you want more pushing power (higher torque) you will need to sacrifice speed ie robot will move slower. hp = (Q. )(rpm) 63025 {Q in lb.in.} {Torque from 1 hp @ 1750 = 3 lb.ft.}

Constant Torque vs. Constant HP Variable Speed Prime Movers Constant Torque (Reduced h.p. With Reduced Speed) l D.C. Motors ©Constant torque up to base speed (name plate speed) l A.C. Frequency Controlled Motors ©Constant torque up to 60 hz l Hydraulic Motors ©Configured for constant torque or constant HP

Constant Torque vs. Constant HP Variable Speed Prime Movers Constant Horsepower (Increased Torque With Reduced Speed) l l D.C. Motors © Constant HP Above Base Speed (Name Plate Speed) l l A.C. Frequency Controlled Motors ©Constant HP Above 60 hz l l Hydraulic Motors ©Configured For Constant HP Or Constant Torque l l Mechanical Variable Speed Drives ©Constant HP Up To Maximum Power Capability

l Chain Drive is more suitable to long-term continuous running and power transmission with limited torque fluctuation. Gears are more fit to reversing or intermittent drives. l The greater the shaft center distance, the more practical the use of chain and belt, rather than gears. l Speed reduction/increase of up to seven to one can be easily accommodated. l Chain can accommodate long shaft-center distances (less than 4 m), and is more versatile. l It is possible to use chain with multiple shafts or drives with both sides of the chain. l Standardization of chains under the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the International Standardization Organization (ISO), and the Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) allow ease of selection. l It is easy to cut and connect chains. l The sprocket diameter for a chain system may be smaller than a belt pulley, while transmitting the same torque. l Sprockets are subject to less wear than gears because sprockets distribute the loading over their many teeth.
