Group 24 - Cyclo HBB Parallel Shaft Helical Gearbox with Cyclo Reducer Input
In gate 1 we chose a product and began to plan for the project ahead of us. The goals were to prepare for the upcoming product dissection, to set up a management structure for the course of the semester, to carry out initial research, and to preform an initial analysis.
In gate 2 our group dissected the Cyclo HBB Gearbox. The purpose of the dissection is to examine and later analyze the many different components inside of the gearbox.
During gate 3 we chose and analyzed a few different components within the gearbox. As part of the analysis we discussed different factors that could have influenced the design and decision making behind the components in the gear box. Our analysis explores the component function, component form, the manufacturing methods, and the complexity of each component that we chose. We also chose three of the components and created three dimensional computer models for them in order to showcase them in a partial assembly. We finish by making three suggestions for design revisions that could be benefit the products versatility of performance.
