Motor mounting

Recommended Posts

Just a short question.

As part of a dyno project, I am coupling two dc motors together with a timing belt. To allow the same rig to be used for different test motors, I am considering mounting this (test) motor on a table, which can be positioned in two directions on leadscrews. This would allow the same timing belt to be used.

Is this a sensible idea from a vibration/stress concentration point of view?

My reservations are that vibration will cause the table to creep towards the other motor.

Which sample test is this a problem from?
