Abstract

A novel method of design for a hydraulic robotic lifting equipment (HRLE) was modelled, commonly used by marinas and Automobile industries. Lifting appliances have different working principles because of their individual characteristic behaviours. This work analysis a characteristic curve made from values obtained from various adjustments of the stroke working speed of the hydraulic lift system and the time used. A hydraulic lift of an experimental setup was developed for different adjustable heights and speeds and simulated to get the actual optimum value of operation under different loading conditions. The motion was free of inconsistent movement and a steady speed was attained after a 0.6s maximum time limit. A flow control valve and a pressure relief valve were used to adjust the speed without any extreme irregular high pressure. A demonstration for possibilities and applicability of HRLE is presented which is applicable both in industries and institutions for learning.
