Engineered Solution

Project Details:

Goal: Connect a hydraulic motor to a machine screw actuator.

Factors: The screw actuator did not have an appropriate mounting face and/or locating pilot diameter to direct mount an adaptor up to. By removing the existing bearing cap plate and utilizing this information, we were able to design an adaptor that would replace the bearing cap plate and mount the customer’s hydraulic motor all in one.

How we did it: We designed this BSF Adaptor based on our existing design practices along with SolidWorks Premium we were able to perform a stress analysis to ensure that this design would not fail in the field.
