Analysis of a High Precision Syringe Pump, You are a design engineer working for a firm. Whereby, specialises in developing high-precision dispensation systems for delivering fluid solutions in medical devices. Your manager has sent you a parametric model of a single-axis syringe pump. Whereby, was develope-d on a previous commercial project. The mechanism can move the syringe plunger relative to its body by rotating a lead screw mechanism attached a runner.
Your manager has asked you to design a new electromechanical actuation system. That is compose-d of a geare-d DC motor that drives the leadscrew runner of the syringe pump. shown in Figure 1. However, she provide-d CAD components and Simulink starter models for the assembly, n.b. these files can be downloade-d from the KEATS module page in the MATLAB project archive, syringe_pump.mlproj.
She has also sent you a list of requirements that she has discussed with the customer appende-d to the end of this document. Hence the client is particularly interested in obtaining precise, continuous flow rates from the syringe. Also your manager encourages you to use the model as a starting point. Therefore welcomes further input on how to improve the mechanical design.
You are responsible for: specifying DC motor, power supply, and gearbox characteristics. design a digital motor controller. demonstrate the effectiveness of your design. You are highly encourage-d to brainstorm additional information about the context in which this mechanical system is to be use-d.
