Motor selection for AGV

Postby Halil Yakisan » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:36 pm

Hi OM tech support,

I have the project about AGV.

I try to find out suitable BLDC motor but I cannot. Could you help me?

Request specification:
- Load: 1000kg
- AGV weight: 150kg
- Speed: 1m/s
- 2 wheel drived
- 4 free wheel
- Gear mounted on the motor

Please find attached my calculataion.

I use your software for sizng. I need 2motor wtih their gear to mount it to my agv.

If there isn't any suitable motor? (DC or AC for AGV)
Thanks for your support.

Hi Halil,

In regards to your post, unfortunately, there is no BLDC motor that can meet the required speed and torque specifications for this application. In order to meet the torque, a 200:1 gear ratio option was needed. With this gearing, the max speed was 18 RPM. If you were to switch over to a 4 wheel drive system, then you would still run into issues. Going with this route would mean that a 100:1 gear ratio option would be considered for the torque requirement. This option still does not offer the speed that you require. (Furthermore, the speed which you had: 50 m/min, does not match the 1 m/s speed that you stated. Instead it would need to be 60 m/min which would mean that you would require 95.54 RPM from the motor). With the 100:1 gearing option, not only is the speed not reached, but the inertia requirement would also not be satisfied.

For these reasons, unfortunately there is not a product that can be recommended for this AGV application.
