My motor setup is vibrating too much for my intended project.
Here are my assembled parts :
- ClearPath® - Integrated Servo System motor, p/n CPM-MCVC-2310S-RQN
- two Actobotics 15 Tooth, Flanged XL timing pulley, p/n 615432
- one Actobotics 3/8” wide, 10" long, 1/5 pitch XL timing belt, p/n B375-100XL
The motor is running under the velocity controlled option and is spinning 0-4000 rpms depending on a knob setting.
A few ideas: I was reading that with timing belts a larger pinion diameter could lessen vibrations. Should I search for something larger? The current pinions are around 1" pitch. Also maybe my tension on the belt is not right? I'm not sure how to measure this or what tension I'm looking for. The assembly has slots, so I can move by hand to make the belt tighter or looser.
I'm far from an expert and this is my first project. Any advice would be much appreciated.
