Step 6B.5: Label from P&P Tool to Transfer Tool

This Step reviews the design that is necessary to transfer the label from the P&P Tool to the Transfer Tool.

tog_plus        Requirements Specification

To transfer the label from the P&P Tool to the Transfer Tool:

Make the position and velocity vector of the P&P Tool be identical to that of the Transfer Tool at each contact-point as they roll over each other.

We can satisfy the motion condition if we roll, without slipping, the P&P Toll along the Transfer Tool.


Available Design Variables:

Shape of the P&P Tool NO: The shape of the P&P Tool was set in Step 6B.4.

Motion of the P&P Tool

Shape of the Transfer Tool

Motion of the Transfer Tool

Note that the Transfer Turret rotates in the same direction to the P&P Turret. This means that the tools move in opposite directions as they pass each other.  This is a very onerous design problem.
