I have three conveyors. I am trying to find the minimum speed needed for the second (middle) conveyor in order to avoid collisions with the pieces of wood. The conveyors 1 and 2 are perpendicular to one another, as are conveyor 2 and 3.
Information I have:
*Vx = 145 feet per minute; Conveyor 1 speed/ *W = 5 inches; Width of wood/ *G = 4 inches; Gap between pieces of wood/ *Vy = 180 FPM; Conveyor 3 speed/
Information I am looking for: *Speed needed for Conveyor 2 in order to avoid collisions
If anyone knows a formula or a resource they can point me to, that'd be awesome! I feel like I just can't find what I'm looking for online when I don't know exactly what I'm looking for.
EDIT Apparently my question was closed. I will add this diagram and see if someone can help now that I've added a visual representation of my words. I want to know how fast conveyor 2 needs to run in order for the pieces not to hit each other. All pieces of wood are the same size.
