Torque required to tilt 1200 kg mass?

  1. Mar 17, 2019 at 6:52 AM #1
    Object to be tilted = 1200mm diameter cylinder
    Cylinder height = 2.5 meter
    weight of tilting assembly = 1200 kg
    Cylinder is on platform which is "L" shaped and tilting point is on that corner of "L" as in attached image.
    Shaft diameter on which it is tilted id 63mm
    Angular acceleration = 0.05236 rad/sec^2

    tilting angle 90 degree
    I need to calculate torque so that i can select worm reduction gearbox and motor required for operation.

    You left out a key element in your list of specs. Do you know what it is?
