Step 6B.6: Label from Transfer Tool to Bottle

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

tog_plus        Requirements Specification

To transfer the label from the Transfer Tool to the Bottle:

Make the position and velocity of the Transfer Tool agree with the Bottle

Velocities are Vectors. Hence, the velocity must be the same direction can magnitude.

We can satisfy the motion conditions if we roll, without slipping, the Transfer Tool along the Bottle


Available Design Variables:

Shape of the Transfer Tool  NO: The shape of the Transfer Tool was set in Step 6B.5.

Motion of the Transfer Tool

Shape of the Bottle Tool - NO: good luck with the Marketing Department if you want to change the shape of the bottle.

Motion of the Bottle

Note that the Transfer Turret rotates in the opposite direction to the Bottle Turret. This means that the tools move in same directions as they pass each other.

The Bottle Turret is twice the diameter.

Summary of Transfer from Transfer Tool to a Bottle

This video shows the finished design of this Step.

Modify the Motion of the Transfer Tool so that it rolls along the Bottle

Modify the Motion of the Bottle

Note: We know the shape of the Transfer Tool and the Bottle.

Ignore the Cams – I add the Cam in the next Steps of Tutorial – I got ahead of myself.
