Challenge Competition: Syringe Hydraulic Arm
Transcript of Challenge Competition: Syringe Hydraulic Arm
Angel Martines Hydraulics The basic idea of any hydraulic system is very simple: Force that is applied at one point is transmitted to another point using an incompatible fluid. The fluid is almost and oil of some sort. Situation A design for a hydraulic arm was given to us to improve. This basic design seemed to be fragile and didn't had the enough power we wanted to hold a specific object. Also, the arm didn't move to the sides which didn't supported the movement we desired. Finally, the gripper was straight and gave difficulties picking and holding a bigger curved object. Ideas Use PVC-tubes or pinewood to make the arm strong.
Use a hair's click for the gripper to hold the object tight.
Use clothes hangers for the gripper to make it more flexible.
Place a car that worked with solar energy to make the arm move and reach farther objects.
Create a base for the controlling syringes and not having them hanging freely. Working Schedule Our Hydraulic Arm Conclusion In conclusion, hydraulics is a branch of physics and engineering that deals with the study of the mechanical properties of fluids. All this depends on the forces that are interposed with the mass strength and push the same. It was learned that to achieve a good project, teamwork is extremely important because several minds, develop different ideas coming together to make this project. Our prototype was done mainly with plastic tubes, but when we were finishing that prototype we decided to create an more improved arm because the PVC-tubes were creating a lot of weight. We ended up doing it with light pine wood to reduce the weight of the arm and reducing the size. Finally, we developed high knowledge of what engineering could be of us in the future which is designing, improving and working as a team. Thank you for your attention
