The Rational Footsteps for the Design of the Mechanism of a Vertical Carousel-type Storage Device

By António Gabriel-Santos, João Rolla, Alberto Martinho, João Fradinho, António Gonçalves-Coelho and António Mourão


AbstractThe number of design parameters in a vertical carousel-type storage device is larger than the number of functional requirements, which makes it a redundant design. The usual design approach for this kind of mechanical systems is based on trial and error. The aim of this paper is to present a method that leads to the most appropriate sequence in the design of these machines. With this propose in mind, the design equation of the system was examined and subsequently rearranged, so that it reveals that its motion subsystem could be regarded as a decoupled design. This allowed establishing a set of rational footsteps that were used to design the aforesaid system, as described in the paper
