Bracket Load calculations

  1. Aug 8, 2008 #1
    Hi Guys I hope you can help. I’m currently trying to modify some existing equipment and have a problem that I hope you good people can help me solve. I have a fabricated bracket that currently supports another bracket than runs on linear bearings to position its self.

    see attached JPG for rough layout.

    We would like the existing bracket to support a load of approximately 1000kgs and after doing some research and found some calculations that would appear to be roughly what I need but I’m not sure.

    I was wondering if anyone here would be so kind as to point me in the right direction as to what calculation / formula I would need to calculate the maximum load the bracket will take.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
