Kinematic model: crank mechanism (KI 110)

Kinematic model: crank mechanism (KI 110)

crank mechanism with fixed or oscillating cylinder

CodeKl110

Description:

  • The crank mechanism is the functional group of machines that converts a uniformly rotating (rotational) motion into a reciprocating (translational) motion or vice versa.
  • Crank mechanisms are used in engines, pumps or presses.
  • The KI 110unit can be used to demonstrate this conversion with either a fixed or oscillating cylinder.
  • The experimental unit comprises a crank disk, connecting rod and cylinder.
  • The connecting rod is connected to the crank disk on one side via a crank. Changing the position of the crank on the crank disk adjusts the crank radius in three positions.
  • At the other end, the connecting rod is connected to the cylinder.
  • This end models the piston. Simply turning a screw makes it possible to block the pivoting cylinder and, thus, to demonstrate a crank mechanism with either a fixed or oscillating cylinder.
  • The angle is adjusted using the crank disk; an angle scale is integrated into the base plate.
  • A millimetre-precise steel ruler is attached to the cylinder to measure the stroke.
  • The elements are mounted on a base plate.
  • Two handles make it easy to carry and stack the unit.
