Product Details

Technical Description 
This benchtop unit is used to show the resonance and critical bending speed on rotating shafts. The construction of the rotor of a thin, flexible shaft and rigid weights facilitates the theoretical comprehension. The rotor is held on the base frame with pivoting bearings. The weights and bearings can be placed at any location along the shaft and attached securely with quick-acting clamps. It is driven by a flexible coupling. Two motor speeds can be fine-adjusted and preset with ten-speed potentiometers. They are controlled electronically and displayed digitally. It is possible to switch speeds during the experiment as desired. A transparent protective hood covers the rotating parts. A set of electrical vibration sensors with clamping set TM 620.01 is also available.  
Learning Objectives / Experiments

Bending oscillation and resonance on a rotating shaft at various speeds
- Simply loaded shaft
  + bending critical speed, oscillation form
   + self-centering of flexible rotor shafts
- Double loaded shaft
  + oscillation form of 1st and 2nd critical speeds
- Floating disc
  + critical speed
* Basic experiment on machine dynamics1
* Unlimited position of bearings and weights on the
* Optimum viewing of experiment through transparent
  protective hood1
* Two speeds (can be preset)
