I’m in the initial stages of research for building a motorized drive for a manual coffee grinder.
I’m wondering if odrive would be a good fit.
The requirements are:
- Relatively high torque (esp. on startup when the grinder is already loaded)
- With a fine grind setting I measured about 3 Nm, so assuming 6 to have some headroom
- Lowish RPM (~ 200)
- Probably geared reducer (I’m thinking planetary gearbox)
Is this something you can see the odrive and some off the shelf rc motors work for, or do I need to look at something else?
