Movable Torque Drive Platform will be designed and fabricated to house an existing (not supplied) drive motor with gear reducer. The housing will be fabricated from solid metal end reaction plate held in place with tie bars. The sides of the enclosed will be finished aluminum plates that are held in place with fasteners. Required indicator lights and controls with be recessed into one of the panels. The enclosure will be fitted with linear bearings that will ride on case hardened guide rails. The platform will house a six inch diameter motor. The torque drive platform will be free to move as needed for testing.
Torque Transmission System will attach directly the movable torque drive platform. The transmission bushing will permit near friction less rotation movement of the drive shaft. The torque sensor (not supplied) will be restricted from rotation movement by an “L” shaped aluminum bracket attached to the movable torque drive platform. The shaft will be supplied to required end couplings for the torque sensor. The motor shaft will be adaptable to 3 different rotary load cells.
Mechanical interface for Customer Fasteners and Support Plate will be fabricated from quality steel with a protective oil finish black oxide. The fastener fixture will accept square fastener assemblies. The fixture will be supplied with a clamping bracket. The fixture will be fastened to the support plate and the support plate supplied with through holes to fasten it to a table or bench (not supplied).
