Dynamics of Machine Laboratory Equipment

Motorized Universal Gyroscope Apparatus



The “LabTek” experimental apparatus is used for studying relationship between gyroscopic torque, rotor speed and rate of precession.

The equipment consists of a rotor with a motor, and a low voltage power supply and speed control. The rotor is mounted horizontally on a frame with two bearing supports. The rods with sliding weights are attached to the frame along the rotor axis to produce balance, positive or negative torque conditions. A tachometer measures rotor and progression speeds. The frame rests on a vertical shaft on bearings to permit progression. A guard with transparent front is provided for safety.

The top assembly can be removed for determination experimentally the moment of inertia, and nutation study.
