In this video, I will show to you cylindrical cam and follower mechanism. It will convert rotational motion to linear motion that parallel with axis of cylinder. As picture above, Red cylinder is drive, Black groove is around at cylinder, roller follower is attach at green bar. When red cylinder rotate, roller follower will track […]
In this post I will guide to you how to measure male taper with two tubes. α: haft taper angle R1 and L1: inner radius and length of the small tube (Blue color) R2 and L2: inner radius and length of the larger tube (Purple color) I. How to measure male taper angle with two […]
In this post I will guide how to measure female taper with two balls and Vernier caliper. α: haft taper angle R: radius of the large ball r: radius of the small ball Step 1: Drop the small ball in to the taper and use the Vernier caliper to check distance of 1st ball. Step […]
In this post I will explain simple planetary gear set. How does it work and calculate? A planetary gear set has four main items : sun gear, ring gear, carrier, planetary gears. Sun gear and planetary gears are outer gear assembly. Ring gear and planetary gears are 1. How does simple planetary gear set work? + […]
In this post, I will explain How to Scotch-yoke mechanism work? It converts rotary to linear motion. Red link is drive,rotates, Yellow pin will slide on the yoke. This causes the green link (attached sliding bar) to reciprocate, tracing a sinusoidal waveform. You can see this video below for more understanding.
In this post, I will explain how to Tchebicheff straight line generator work? It this 4 bar linkage mechanism type. What is special? As picture above, this mechanical mechanism has 3 bar. Purple bar can rotate around yellow pin. Green bar can rotate around orange pin. Blue bar can rotate around red pin that […]
