I am having a little difficulty Simulating this
The figre below shows the assembly
The shaft spins and the the Blue Mechanism " Pillow Block" is attached to a Plate( Jaw ) which moves Up and Down. There are two jaws one of them is fixed ( Left one)
How do calculate the distance of the Gap.
I need the Maximum distance the pate can travel. What type of motion simulations can i apply so that the whole assembly shows motions like the offset cam motion along with it the plate/Jaw motion and the pivot Motion of the Pivot Mechanism at the bottom right exreme
i am attaching the assembly Please review
Thank You for Reading
I tried a Motion Study with Random RPMS; for the motor Rotaion ( I do not have the Exact Calculations Yet) The Crushing Jaws Barely Moves and the Shaft does only a SIngle Rotation , The shaft is suppose to move a Cam that is Offset which turns the Pillow Block ( The Huge Blue Thing ) that moves the Plate( Jaw) in kind of an Occilating Form
