Adaptation Gear and Pinion Formulation to Produce Epicycloid Graphic Simulation for Food Printing
The food printing done by manual requires skill, especially to form a pattern or writing on food surfaces. For a large scale, this process could increase the cost of manpower. Design process become more faster by computer simulation instead of attempt real parts into the prototype. Therefore a software has been developed to visualize the output. The work modified the classical mathematic equation by substituting dynamic parameters in relation with gear size and speed. Epicycloid patterns generated through different combinations of 2 spur gears are modelled in mathematical expression and simulated graphically through a programming software. The epicycloid simulated patterns are then analyzed and categorized based on conditions, similar features and intricate patterns. It was found that slight difference in gear ratio is contributed significant change in the pattern. A unique pattern is selected due to its unique characteristic based on its economy, fuzziness and aesthetical characteristics.
