The THEORY of MACHINES range enables clear and comprehensive learning of and topics. An understanding of the way in which forces act and react, is fundamental when studying the application of loads on a variety of fixed structures and rotating machinery. The THEORY of MACHINES form a comprehensive range of equipment, equally suitable for demonstration and experimental work.
All the THEORY of MACHINES hardware operates in a standalone mode, with a large number being supplied with Data Acquisition Software.
This apparatus consists of a complete model Ackerman linkage mounted on a flat board. It is ideal for demonstration or experimental work and is an aid to understanding the design principles involved within a steering system.
This apparatus represents a scale model of the wishbone and king pin arrangement of a front wheel suspension complete with a wheel on an adjustable stub axle. The king pin assembly includes a steering link to demonstrate how a real car works.
A stepped shaft with three diameters is carried in a bracket which then allows the comparison of the angular rotation of a shaft and the tangential speed at the circumference.
Bench top unit to clearly demonstrate the functionality of gear trains, pulleys and belts. Based around a bench top unit, students can quickly assemble single and compound gear trains, pulley and belt arrangements. Theory and analysis behind the key elements of the apparatus function is supplied.
This compact bench top unit is constructed around a motor that is used for driving a variety of customer apparatus. The apparatus allows speed, torque and power to be monitored and calculated.
