Mechanical System


Agenda

  • Mechanical Systems – Contest Outcomes

  • Basic Pneumatics

  • The Kit of Parts


About the contest

  • Emphasis on

    • Design Techniques (Discussed tomorrow)

    • Pneumatics

      • Basics

      • Components

      • Symbols


About Pneumatics

  • One type of Fluid Power

  • Main difference between pneumatics and Hydraulics: Compressibility


F = PA

Tradeoffs?


Components

  • Compressor

  • Pressure Switch

  • Pressure Gauge

  • Regulator

  • Tank

  • Flow Control

  • Directional Control Valves (solenoid valves)

  • Cylinders

  • Hose and Fittings


Compressor

  • The compressor squeezes air into the tank


Pressure Switch & Gauges


Regulator

  • Reduces Pressure “downstream”


Tank

  • Accumulator, receiver

  • Size determines how much energy is available.

    • Keep this in mind when testing on the testbed


Flow Control Fitting

  • Restricts airflow in one direction

  • Controls speed.


Directional Control Valves

  • Solenoid Valves, 4 or 5-Way Valves, Spool Valves


Cylinders

  • Where the action is

  • Double acting


Force Available
