SCOPE OF EXPERIMENTATIONS:-
(1) Supported end conditions: Make use of end blocks with single self-aligning bearing.
(2) Fixed end conditions: -Make use of end blocks with double bearing. The guards D1 & D2 can be fixed at any position on the supporting bar frame, which fits on side support F. Rotating shafts are to be fitted in blocks in A &B stands. .
The driving motor is 230V DC 1/16
H.P; 6500 RPM. A dimmer state of 240v, 2amp, and 50 cycles is used to control speed of the rotating shaft.
EQUIPMENT DETAILS :-
(A) Coupling: - A flexible shaft is used to drive the test shaft from motor.
(B) Ball bearing fixing ends:- The ends fix the shaft while it rotates. The shaft & the end-fixing device can be replaced within a short time with the help of this unit. The fixing ends provide change of end fixing condition of the rotating shaft as per the requirement.
