A Comprehensible Guiode to Servo Motor Sizing By Wilfried Voss
eBook (PDF): $9.95 (excl. taxes)
Download immediately.
The Importance of servo motor sizing should not be underestimated. Proper motor sizing will not only result in significant cost savings by saving energy, reducing purchasing and operating costs,... More > reducing downtime, etc.; it also helps the engineer to design better motion control systems. However, the knowledge of mechanical systems and their influence on motor speed, inertia and torque requirements seems to decline in a world where modern technology aspects, such as tuning and programming, seem to be the main focus. The motor sizing process involves a number of mathematical equations, which are most certainly documented, but not necessarily with the motor sizing process in mind. This book focuses primarily on servo motor sizing and it documents in detail the inertia and torque calculations of standard mechanical components and the motor selection process.< Less

The two part book presents a method for calculating three dimensional bevel gear geometry accurately without detailed knowledge of the generating tool and machine settings. In the first part, a set... More > of tools are developed using an engineering approach and special notation which makes complex three dimensional bevel gear geometry easy to follow and visualize. The example in the second part demonstrates the use of the tools to solve not only a complex gearing problem but a practical problem that needed a solution. At the present time bevel gear strength ratings are based on a spur gear approximation. The formulas presented calculate true bevel gear geometry using basic gear parameters as input. They provide a basis for the next generation of strength rating calculations.< Less

More > component aboard a fleet boat. Submarine Distilling Systems Navpers 16170, was originally written to acquaint crewmen with the mechanisms used to replenish the sub’s supply of fresh water. These systems are important not only for providing water for cooking and drinking purposes, but because fresh water provides cooling for the Diesel engines, and serves as a vital agent for battery and steam boiler systems. This manual includes a description of how water is distilled, and discusses its use aboard the boat. It uses the Model S and Model X-1 systems as examples, detailing their operation, maintenance, and inspection.

More > component aboard a fleet boat. Underwater Log Systems Navpers 16168, acquainted crewmen with the sub’s positioning and tracking systems. Since subs operate below the surface, the normal means of establishing position at sea -- such as sighting the sun in the day or the stars at night -- are impossible. Yet, knowing the sub’s position and speed is vital both for navigation and combat. In an era before GPS, the log system allowed an accurate track to be made of the boat’s position, and enabled calculation of the speed of target vessels. This book explains in detail the theory, operation, calibration and maintenance of various log systems.

It also chronicles the gallantry and persistence of these men, who under the most difficult conditions possible, performed critical missions and almost single-handedly decimated Japan’s merchant fleet. “To those whose contribution meant the loss of sons, brothers or husbands in this war,” Admiral Lockwood noted in a speech given on Navy Day, 1945, “ I can assure you that they went down fighting and that their brothers who survived them took a grim toll of our savage enemy to avenge their deaths. May God rest their gallant souls.” This book is a testament to all those, living and dead, who served in the Silent Service in WWII.

Regulus Missile Service and Launching Instructions By Periscope Film LLC

The Regulus missile was a direct outgrowth of World War II. The success of Germany’s V-1 “buzz bombs” and the awesome power of the a-bomb suggested that developing a... More > submarine-launched, nuclear-armed guided missile was an imperitive. The Chance-Vought Aircraft Company won the contract for Regulus with a bold proposal. Their missile resembled a pilotless jet aircraft, and during the test phase was equipped with landing gear, allowing the missile to be recovered rather than expended during the tests. Regulus would be radio controlled, either by a chase aircraft or by a nearby ship or submarine, and it could carry a nuclear payload. JATO boosters enabled submarine launch of the Regulus. It would be deployed aboard five submarines. They conducted the nation’s first nuclear deterrent patrols off the coast of the Soviet Union in 1959-1964. Originally printed by the U.S. Navy and Chance-Vought, this handbook was “restricted”. It was declassified and is here reprinted in book form.< Less

The Corsair was one of WWII’s most superb fighters, achieving a victory ratio of nearly 11:1 in the Pacific. Had things worked out differently, its sister craft, Goodyear’s F2G... More > “Super” Corsair, might have eclipsed that record. Based on Goodyear’s fixed-wing F1G design, the F2G had a bubble cockpit and was fitted with a Pratt & Whitney R-4360 engine. The twenty-eight cylinder, four row radial air-cooled monster provided nearly 50% more take-off power than the standard double Wasp. Yet by the close of WWII, only five F2G’s had been built, and so the plane never saw combat.
