Tipping Point Lift V1

Pros and Cons

  • Pros:

  • In this design, 2 motors are used to power the lift 

  • We plan on using 2, 100 rpm motors with a torque ratio of 16:3 to provide max power

  • Both sides of the lift are connected to each other with c-channels to provide stability

  • The passive grabber saves a motor

  • Cons:

  • Because of the heavy torque ratio, the lift will move at a very slow speed

  • It may take a while for the mobile goals to release from the grabber due to its length

  • Due to the high weight, the axles may warp
