M E576 HW#1 Name Spring 2011 1. Design a closed loop control system using a DC motor as the axial drive element and an incremental encoder as the feedback device. The 16 bit computer is used to generate the position commands. The maximum speed of the motor is 1800 rpm. The system is equipped with a leadscrew of 1 mm pitch. The maximum required feedrate is 1 m/min and the required BLU is 0.01 mm. a. What is the required gear ratio? b. What is the encoder gain? c. What is the maximum frequency of pulses emitted by the encoder? d. What is the maximum travel length this system can provide? Hint: Review Koren Chapter 1, if necessary. “Encoder gain” means the number of transmitted pulses per revolution of the encoder. 2. The maximum table speed of a CNC table is set at 100 mm/sec. Calculate the approximate cycle time of the following part program (unit in mm) assuming the maximum acceleration achievable is 40 mm/sec 2 . The tool is in the home position (0,0,0) before the cycle starts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
