Specify the number of mechanisms in parallel (n>1) for
|Load values such as Payload and Thrust values
are NOT multiplied by n.
Mechanism mass, inertia and rated values are multiplied by n.
In the mechanism form, specify n as shown in the drop down list.
Note when n>1, additional values for mass, inertia and rigidity show the total values.
When number of mechanisms in parallel is more than 1 (n>1), all affected cells are shaded and the total values are shown.
Note that the Payload and Thrust values are NOT multiplied by n. The rack & pinion mass, inertia, rigidity and rated force values are multiplied by n. So in this example where n=2, the rated max force for one rack & pinion is 3,030.5 N, and the total rated force for n=2 is 3,030.5N x 2 = 6,061 N.
