Yes, this looks like an application where a small gear motor and a hall sensor to count rotations would
be quite adequate.
Torque is measurable, learn how to measure it, its very basic physics. You multiply the distance from the
rotation axis by the tangential force needed at that distance to move the load.
Double for good measure and select a gear motor.
Thanks MarkT, ill try to work it out the torque, ill will update on my progress. Thanks
I wish your Grandpa a happy birthday but I have no wish to help with anything connected with cigarettes.
Thanks, anyway im allergic to cigi too. But oh well what can you do? Gift is all about what they want, not what you want to give hahah cheers
I would prefer a NEMA 42 ...
My last comment:
Do you have the slightest idea how big a NEMA 34 is?
I bet, a NEMA 11 with a gear would do - you don't need speed and a NEMA 11 plus gear would deliver all the torque you need.
As a non-smoker I am also out here.
I have a talk to a friend last week, so he suggest me to used a gear pulley. Attach a small 3D printed gear to the stepper motor then a bigger gear at the cigi injector. Then use a belt. Do you think this would work?
