|Confusion calculating electric motor size|
|Posted by: powerwagon78 ®
I am having some confusing issues on a project I am working on, and found this site and hope that some of you can help me with this. I am considering using a stepper motor (need precise starts and stops) to spin a thin metal disk, but I need to make sure that I pick the correct size motor. The shaft of the motor will point upward, with the disk being parallel to the ground, and a collared bearing around the upper end where the disk meets the shaft. Here's my questions:
1. If I am not overly concerned with the acceleration this spins at, do I just simply need a motor with enough torque to overcome static friction?
Thanks guys, if there are any more questions just ask. I really appreciate it a lot.
