Stabilizer Leg Suspension Challenge

Medium

Design a better stabilizer leg suspension system for a hand truck that adjusts to fit its terrain and has a customizable angle and height for its user.

Novative Designs Inc. designs and manufactures a line of DC-powered, motorized, light material handling equipment. They recently made a new version of their hand truck that has an optional rear stabilizer arm. They call this addition a "stinger." It pivots about an axle to let the hand truck angle vary on hills, ramps or uneven ground.

What's the problem?

The new "stinger" stabilizer arm cannot handle the large amount of force that stresses it.

Novative had only planned on 1200 pounds of force, so the spring assisted shock is too undersized. For example, with an 800-pound load, the forces compressing the spring are calculated to be approximately 8400 pounds. They have not found a shock with a 6” center to center install distance that can handle that load. They need your help!

Can you create a stronger stabilizer?

Design a new solution or improve the existing one.

Your design needs to bolt up to the existing hand truck and provide ample strength, durability, and flexibility. Use an adjustable rate control device such as a spring assisted shock, gas spring or hydraulic shock, or even a simple rubber bushing. View the main image and drawing, below, and use the Download Specifications button to learn more about the existing design.

Requirements

  • You must include:
    - STEP or IGES file format
    - 3D file from any CAD software you choose
    - Description explaining your design idea and how it works

  • Judging criteria:
    - How many of the existing parts can be salvaged, specifically the arm (part number 13027) and the left and right mounting brackets (part numbers 13026L and 13026R)
    - Simple, durable and cost effective design
    - Option to provide additional deployed stinger positions so user can adjust the preferred angle of the hand truck to suit his/her height and angle preference. For example a low, medium and high position, and then stowed position such as it is now.

    One question though.... Do you really need a suspension type of "stinger"? Couldn't it be just a rigid one, with a softer - maybe inflatable tire? Because as I see It the shock absorber as it is ...well is no good.

    along those lines, can this not be solved simply by using a stiffer spring, or having a stiffer spring custom made?

    Our prior hand trucks have fixed rear stabilizer arms. The problem with them is that when an operator goes down a ramp, the tendency is to lean the truck back into the hill, which then loads the rear wheel(s) and unloads the front wheels. We do not want that to happen since the font wheels provide braking, and they need positive traction (weight) to function well.
    A stiffer spring is possible, but we are looking for an off-the-shelf shock if possible and have not found one that has the capacity and can fit in the 6" center distance

    but the only way to stiffen things up without touching the shock is to increase or decrease the leveraging using linkages etc. like in auto or bike suspension, but you still want to use the standard parts??

    What about a heat treatment of the current spring. I'm not a specialist in this subject, but I think that an appropriate heat treatment of the existing spring could vary its properties drastically. Maybe its the simplest and most direct solution for you.

    I agree with Pierre: STEP file would be helpful.

    We should have an .stp file up shortly.
    regarding the spring, the install dimensions are 6" center to center, and the OD of the spring is approximately 2".
    Yes - Any spring, shock or rate control device can be used, but the preference is to use something that is off the shelf, and can fit in the existing center distance. If this is not possible, then we are happy to review a more creative approach.

    Darryl Berlinger 9 months ago

    Forgot to address the heat treat question. We have discussed heat treating the spring, and it could be done, but then we are getting into a custom spring. The ideal solution is a "screen door -type " sping/shock by which the tension of the compression resistance can be adjusted by turning a screw or some other device. Crude analogy, but the best way to describe what we are after.

    The for the spring is 8400 pounds of force? (it is the same as aprox. 4200N?)

  • Darryl Berlinger

    Darryl Berlinger 9 months ago

    Our defined worst case scenario is an 800-pound load on the hand truck with the CG about 42" off the ground. With this load, we roughly calculated that the compression force acting on the shock is about 8,400 lbs, which If my conversation calculator is correct, is 37,365 N.

    Azrul Amir 9 months ago

    If the load is 800-pound, and the spring is at an angle, how can the compression force acting on the spring be 8400 lbs? The spring should be experiencing compression force of less than 800-pound.

    Hevi 9 months ago

    Azrul is right, from 800punds = 365kg of weight you get aprox. 3650N of force in vertical direction... so... theres something wrong ;)

    yea thats right how can you get such a large force over 3.65kN with such a low weight of 365kg ?? with the 1200 pounds of force should be enough if you have dual or triple spring put next to each other.

    Darryl,

    One judging criteria is how many existing parts can be saved... I think there is a problem with an important part: 13030, thus, this part cannot be preserved in the way it was designed. Please, download and review this animation (gif) I did to back what I mean.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/horyhn5yv5csg8y/StabilizerLeg02.gif

    Perhaps I misunderstood the operating mode?

    Anderl has uploaded 12 CAD models & has left 210 comments.
  • Darryl Berlinger

    Darryl Berlinger 9 months ago

    Anderl - You are correct - part number 13030 does not work as it is shown on the model, so yes - that part is not to be used and a new part will be used in its place. in order of expense, part number 13027 is the most expensive, so it would be preferable to use that one if possible. However, forgoing a much better complete design just because we want to salvage some parts is not prudent, so if a much better/cost effective design solution requires starting from scratch, so be it.

    Mr Berlinger can you please verify the correctness of the maximum spring reaction force to be 8400 lbf (37365 N). This load is really big. There are structural problems arising if we take the max load requirement as granted.

  • David Thornley

    David Thornley 9 months ago

    Hi Tasos,
    Hevi is correct, your conversion is incorrect. 900lb to kg is 408kg therefore equivalent to approximately 4002N. In your calculation you have used the force of gravity twice.

  • David Thornley

    David Thornley 9 months ago

    Hi Darryl,
    In determining the best solution for the support leg, it would be beneficial to have a step model of the sack truck frame, with the center of gravity for the load identified in the model. Please include the package limitations for the operating arrangement and for transport. These elements are necessary to understand the function and operating conditions of the product.
    Details of the motor arrangement are unnecessary.

    the problem is the angle of your shock in relation to the "swing arm" is too low, the angle needs to be increase, it will increase the force the spring will withstand.

    Just curious, how is the arm lifted up into the upright position? it looks as though there is a quick latch system that clips into the shock? I'm assuming this is unlatched and the shock raises up in the slots while it's raised upright.....

    What are the stinger and brackets made out of? Would welding or simple modifications to these parts such as cutting onto these parts be an option???

    Guys just read the description again: "Novative had only planned on 1200 pounds of force, so the spring assisted shock is too undersized. For example, with an 800-pound load, the forces compressing the spring are calculated to be approximately 8400 pounds. They have not found a shock with a 6” center to center install distance that can handle that load. They need your help!"

    ---> So just do the conversion 1lbf (pound-force) = 4.448N. That means 8400 lbf of the spring reaction force is approximately 37365 N (just use whatever unit conversion tool you like is the same).

    That is why I want someone from Novative to verify that the amount of the spring reaction force is correct, or just give us the whole assembly structure in order to re-calculate the whole thing from scratch.

    Do not base your calculations on the 800 pound load but on the spring reaction forces --> 8400 pounds. That's the amount of force that the stabilizer must overcome in order to be functional.

    @Andi. Thanks, but I'm wondering if we can add welds onto it etc. Keep it but modify it sort of thing. There's some confusion with the force calculations. I'm a smart dude but it's definately been a while since I've taken physics and I'm sorta confused which formula's, calculations to use. I need some concrete figures, perhaps from a suspension specialist. In anycase, I have a few common sense ideas that I think would improve things, just not sure about the math.

    Can you post up the maths, i.e., I don't see the 8400 lbs e.g assume cart at 45° and resolve forces, Tan(45)*800lbs = 800 lbs, then 800 lbs/Cos(45) = 1131,37 lbs Your current spring goes solid at 43mm and this is at 911 lbs, So 1131,37 lbs (without resolving further) is not so far away?

    When fully compressed, the shock is approximately 3 to 3.5" center to center. Note that is the shock (not the spring). The spring itself never is fully compressed. The internal guide is what bottoms out before the spring is completely compressed.

    Thanks to everyone who participated in this tough Challenge! Novative Designs looked in-depth at each requirement category and produced parts for the two top designs. Check the models for pictures of the produced parts! They are likely to produce and test a few more designs, as well. Stay tuned here for updates in the future. They were impressed with all of your designs and are excited to move the process forward! You can expect their final product to combine the best all of the winning entries.
