Motor Selection

Motor Selection:

AME470 Ltd. - Team Pratham


Gear train
Gear Train

  • 6:1 gear ratio required to transmit operating torque with the Buehler DC motor

  • Stainless steel clamp hub gears from Berg

  • Clamps secure gear and pinion

AME470 Ltd. - Team Pratham


Plate design

Grip

Plate w/ Linear Grooves

Plate w/ Spiral Grooves

Plate Design

Motor output results in the spinning of the Plate w/ Spiral Grooves, causing the Grip to move towards the center of the plates along the linear groove

Grip rests at intersection of linear and spiral grooves

Linear Groove

Spiral Groove

Convergence Angle

Resulting Force on Grips from Spiral Groove

Torque Key

Gears

Motor

Torque Key

Plate Design

  • Torque Key is fastened to the central shaft with a spring pin

  • Torque Key interlocks with Plate w/ Spiral Grooves
