SDP/SI – Kinetic Gear Sculpture



Description
A new kinetic gear sculpture from SDP/SI is designed to illustrate mechanical motion principles at trade shows. It was designed and arranged by Andrea Davide, a New York based artist who specializes in creating unique metal sculptures. 

Robert Lindemann, the recently retired Vice President of SDP designed the mechanical drive system that allows the gears to move properly. The motion is driven by an AC gearmotor inside of a large rectangular base, which rotates the smaller circular base on top. The two sprockets attached to the base are driven by bevel gears in mesh with a larger stationary bevel gear inside the base. The sprockets in turn drive the roller chain wrapped around the clear circular disks. The rotation of the circular disks about their center shaft is translated to the center gears inside, which in turn moves the entire geartrain.
SDP/SI - Kinetic Scuplture Video OEM Design Engineers, Machinists, Students, Hobbyists and others rely on SDP/SI for all their small mechanical components and precision gear requirements. Over 87,000 high-quality machined components, molded parts and precision gears are featured in our catalogs.

SDP/SI Catalogs are found on desks around the world because they not only provide detailed product information, but prove to be a handy reference tool when designing. Each catalog features a technical section to assist in designing a Synchronous Drive System - Timing Belts, Pulleys, Chains and Sprockets (Inch Catalog) and a gear drive, Elements of Gear Technology (Metric Catalog). Also included are conversion tables, formulas of energy, inertia, torque, power and work, and various standards and dimensions for inch and metric fasteners, timing belts, pulleys, and much more.
