REVolution Custom Dual Rail Plate By Tycho

Task: Power to the REVolution

This shows customized version of the Dual Rail Plate. This is for our 4th generation rolling gripper system. The small ears are designed to hold a long M3 bolt that have a stack of mini ball bearings on them. These ball bearings squeeze our timing belts together, forcing them into a more oval shape, but still allowing them to glide. This reduces friction quite a bit. Otherwise we had to put a lot more tension between the pulleys to get the belt to fully engage. This plate also has grooves to attach servo pulled wires to control the plates angle one of the REVrails and it has a flange to mount our beater guards.
