ASOM v7 EXAMPLE Spindle Drive

In this example, a complete design for a tailgate with spindle drive is presented. For this purpose, holding forces are taken into account under multiple constraints such as different ground inclinations, an optional snow load, frictions, a clutch, overload cases, safety margins, efficiency factors, etc.

To observe direction-dependent influences, the complete opening process and the complete closing process are evaluated in real time at the same time using compressed time simulation.

ASOM v7 EXAMPLE Spindle Drive

The spindle drive consists of a fully configured spindle and two fully configured springs as additional energy storage elements (general support + popup aid). What is shown here with a one-bar system can be easily transferred to an arc hinge, a four-bar system or a different multi-bar system.
