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 We know that sometimes it takes a custom timing belt and pulley drive system to make everything run smoothly. SDP/SI can modify any of our existing stock timing pulleys and cut custom timing belt lengths for your unique application, creating a custom solution! SDP/SI offers fast-turnaround on precision-engineered components, secondary operations, off-the-shelf or custom components, materials, and specifications.

Many styles, sizes, and configurations are available.

Q: Do you need to open up a bore?
Q: Would you have better results with a lighter plastic pulley?
Q: Do you need a keyway?

A: Whatever your requirements are, we can create a custom pulley specifically for your needs. All of our quality custom-manufactured components are built to deliver the most consistent performance.


Timing Belt and Pulley pitches include:
MXL, XL, L, Miniature FHT®, HTD®, GT®2 and GT®3, T, and posi-drive
