Orbital shaking platfrom

  1. Mar 5, 2008 #1
    i need help designing a orbital shaking platform with a pitch of 20 mm, shaking at speed of upto 300RPM (extended range 500 RPM) with platform size of 525mm x 525 mm, capable of carrying loads of upto 10 Kg without considering the weight of platform itself.

    How to undertake mechanical calculations considering forces etc to derive a strong drive and system components like bearing sizes, shaft sizes, motor power etc

    Unit needs to run on induction gear motor

    basic idea is as shown in the picture attached having counterbalanced triple eccentric drive
