    i use this motor https://www.motiondynamics.com.au/worm-drive-motor-12v-24v-200w-180-rpm-20nm-torque.html

    and i calculate with simcalc and i got this...what you think about it ? its will be good and moving easliy? yi6uyiti.png rwqrqrqrq.png

    Looks to be a compact design, so torque matters more than linear lever speed.

    You can leave room for options but I suggest you start around 50-60mm for lever CTC and max angle of 38-40 degrees, as over that effective torque utilisation declines rapidly.

    You want to maximise motor position Y within the footprint of your design, it is hard to say if you have or have not done that looking at the SimCalc entries, perhaps a quick drawing of your intended rig would help.

    so you advice me to purchase the motor or no? because i was using wiper motor and it was moving great but need more power so i think this motor will give more power right?

    I purchased the 60:1 gearbox separately from Motion Dynamics, after first trying the 25:1s, so not a cheap option: https://www.motiondynamics.com.au/worm-drive-gearbox-to-suit-industrial-motors.html

    Though Motion Dynmaics does have other 200W or 320w motors available with a variety of wormdrive ratios: https://www.motiondynamics.com.au/industrial/

    The 200w 25:1s will work on compact designs for moderate weight users, you do need to maximise the inherent design leverage, and they can be easily be back driven when unpowered plus do run warm under load.

    what you think about this motor its will be good and take weight?
    https://www.alibaba.com/product-det...offerlist.normal_offer.d_title.123056ceCzdSED

    i think i will purchase this one https://www.alibaba.com/product-det...offerlist.normal_offer.d_title.123056ceCzdSED
