We’re trying to smoothly intake four block in a row but the blocks keep twisting and jamming in the intakes. We’ve tried many things:
- two large sprockets
- a large sprocket on top with a smaller sprocket on the bottom
- switching the paddles between large and medium sizes
- changed the compression of the intakes using a mechanical stop
- experimented with the lift angle - the first three blocks seem to go in better with a higher angle while the fourth block seems to need a lower angle
Any related comments or tips will be very appreciated. Thanks!
Is your compression held by a motorM
Yes, it’s held by the motor between the intakes. However there is slack in the chain so one side has an elastic. We also have a mechanical stop so the intakes can’t go in too far.
try extending your tray down further it looks like your tray starts above the intakes and it should start below the intakes
That shouldnt be the problem. I think it’s that since the compression is held by a motor, the intakes dont expand and contract at the right time.
I advise switching to rubber band compression
We had it as a rubber band compression before but we couldn’t get a good system to bring the intakes out when we wanted to stack.
