Abstract

The multidisciplinary implications occurred in the integrated design and development of the motorization for a novel multi axis hip joint simulator using 3D parametric CAD system integrated with analysis and simulation software tools will be described.
The high dynamics required imposed the designers to deeply focus on determining an optimized actuating devices configuration and perfect combination of servomotor, gearbox and drive solution to realize the best dynamical performance.
The 3D CAD system and dynamical simulation software tools strong integration permitted the designers to verify the simulator real final mechanical behaviour and the effectiveness of every single actuators’ combination.
