Design Tips for All Rotary Applications

With any rotating or indexing application whether it be mechanical or servo driven the drive torque required is a function of two quantities – angular acceleration, α, and moment of inertia, I. For many indexing applications it is desirable to minimize index time so that throughput can be maximized. Keeping index time as short as practical requires that angular acceleration be as large as possible. Since Torque = Iα, large accelerations require large torques and large torques require large drives which are more costly and can occupy considerably more space. If torque is to be conserved while maintaining a short index time, the designer has but one choice. – Minimize the load’s moment of inertia (I from the equation above).
