How Does Wheel Size Affect My Robot?

Posted on March 02, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Mechanics.

Are you looking to make a wheeled robot and not sure what size wheel you need? Here we provide an insight into some of the equations which affect your robot’s speed and distance traveled. Angular Velocity The velocity (feet per second) of a robot is directly related to the angular velocity, w (in radians per [...]

... Wheels If you choose a motor with a 6mm diameter shaft, you have some options. Banebots wheels are cheap and pretty durable: Ex: http://www.robotshop.com/en/ban-135-green-wheel.html with: http://www.robotshop.com/en/banebots-hex-hubs-s80.html ...

Ah. That's too bad...it's a tough press fit to do without a special rig. For anyone else attempting this, put the motor in the freezer and the pinion in the oven before making the press fit...the thermal expansion/compression will make the press easier with less chance of buckling the shaft.

It's a press fit; you need to press the pinion gear onto the motor's shaft. Be sure not to move the shaft itself - for example place the motor so the rear shaft touches a solid / hard surface and then press the gear on.

Hello,

How is the pinion gear for the Banebots P60 gearbox supposed to mount to a 550 motor shaft? I just ordered one and there is no set screw or "D" feature, and the bore is slightly too small for it to even fit onto the motor shaft.

Thanks!
Tom

That's my question.. :) It's nearly impossible to match Banebots wheels with the correct hubs. We need to know the shaft bore (3mm, 6mm, 1/2", etc), mounting size and type (hex, keyed, etc), and hub/wheel width of all hubs and wheels in order to ...

RB-Ban-141 and 135 are both 4-7/8" diameter wheels, 0.8" wide (a.k.a. series 80), with a 3/4" hex mount. You therefore need a hub with a 3/4" hex exterior, that is 0.8" wide (a.k.a. series 80). However, there are several of these models, so what is the motor's shaft diamete...

Hi! Which hubs go with the RB-Ban-141 and RB-Ban-135 Banebots wheels? I've got Banebots wheels that don't match the hubs (RB-Ban-153) I have because the hubs aren't wide enough, and I have hubs that don't match any Banebots wheels I have. It would ...

... need higher torque, we would suggest a P60 system, though the compatible motors do not have rear shafts either: Ex: http://www.robotshop.com/en/banebots-64-1-p60-gearbox-rs540-brushed-motor-kit.html We have a section for gear motors with rear shaft here: http://www.robotshop.com/en/gear-motors-with-back-shaft.html ...

I am building a 1/5 scale 4 wheel drive crawler. Each wheel will be driven by a gear-motor. The gear motor will be comprised of a Banebots P-60 132:1 ratio gearbox (RB-Ban-237)coupled to a RS 775 12 volt motor. I need to control speed and direction of all four motors in unison, via radio ...

It would be find for the Banebots, and on the low side for the Duratraxx. You can certainly use the 5V for some normal servos. You might find this useful: http://www.robotshop.com/en/cytron-atx-power-supply-breakout-board-right-angle.html
