You know, why didn't you put suspension on the wheels, so when the ball goes through, the grip of the wheel grabs and expands out to maximize forces in grip and when it goes out, it pushes the ball out maximizing everything to the limit. I underatand that makes it to where it could make it more dangerous and unbalance forces, but I mean. If it works it works

Lovely bit of engineering, good job Ian! Pity you didn't quite reach your goal, but to be fair, accelerating a baseball to 140mph by friction over a contact distance of only ~5-10cm is a pretty crazy ask. Maybe a sequence of flywheels for v2? Or just take the easy way out and go pneumatic... or even solid propellant ;)

I’ve actually built something like this in the past. One of the rotating wheels has to be sprung loaded agains the ball - so the passage of the ball pushes past the rollers. The spinning of the wheels is enough to feed the ball through. I hope that makes sense? I actually used gravity acting on a swing arm that held the motor and the wheel but a spring could be used instead.

Very cool! So many things one could try out to improve the design. I think the slipping is caused by the ball dropping too slowly onto the wheels and then the fast spinning wheels only have a millisecond or so to accelerate the ball. So you could try out to have the balls drop faster onto the wheels already (airpressure?) or increase the time it takes to accelerate the ball. So perhaps 3 sets of wheels each with increasing speed would accelerate the ball more gently and also be able to put more energy in it.

I may be a bit late, however, there is a wheel in competitive robotics called a compliant wheel, which is a wheel that can comply to the shape of the object it is rolling on. Using a medium to lower durometer compliant wheel would help with the traction problem you are having without the need to rebuild the entire setup.

for indexing the balls out of the hopper one at a time you could probably make a simpler setup that uses the same mechanism as pinball machines - Wintergatan did a video not too long ago on his newer marble feed gates that used the same design. They look like super-wide-mouthed pacmans. Also you might have less of an issue with the balls getting shredded if you gradually accelerated them. A baseball normally gets accelerated from zero to a hundred over the whole arc of a thrower's arm motion - you might want to maybe have several wheel sizes, geared together so they spin at the same rotational speed but increasing surface travel speeds. One set would pitch to the next set basically. If you can get ~70mph increase per set of wheels without it stripping the covers off, that's only 3 sets of wheels to get over 200mph.

You need to tack them up with some clay or what they call "dyno sauce" for car and motorcycle dynamometers or something. Do that, use regular hardness balls, and then set the motors to max except the bottom left one (from shooter's perspective) which should be at half, for the ultimate curveball.

The nerf modding community has been dealing with similar problems for YEARS, I'm sure there's already a solution to get those balls launching harder, Concave wheels are just ONE, also using softer balls would probably help too, but you might have to consider having 2 stages of flywheels, the first stages gets the ball going, then the second stage really kicks the speed up a notch.

@Rattytherat you're a springer/ HPA stop aren't you? :P but for real, I doubt a baseball would seal properly in a barrel with the stitching and everything, probably barrel-drag problems too, flywheels are probably the best option for launching a baseball at high velocity.

I think that in fully automatic a legend could aim for the 3rd ball using the first 2 to predict where and when it would be, getting a single chance at a very difficult but arguably possible play. I think 3 separate individual shots are better against someone with that strategy in mind, being arguably impossible to hit unless one could use the action of whoever triggering the device to fire for timing and I honestly don't know how you'd get the location accurate but only getting lucky in one way to hit is still better than 2.

great job.. a couple of points.. number one.. your wheel on the top should actually be positioned on the bottom .. the way a ball is thrown the pitcher creates backspin going from the bottom forward on the ball not the top.. second.. by putting a heavily textured surface on the wheels will increase the friction giving greater velocity.. and third by using a softer ball you are hurting the performance of the "pitch" a harder ball will not absorb as much of the energy creating less of a damping effect on the kinetic energy....

I'm not an engineer, but I think you should've put "shock breakers" or some kind of big springs on each of the wheels, so that the wheel would adjust to the ball's width and pinch the ball when it came through. So there would be less scraping? IDK, just a thought.

Obviously, one reason why the balls were slipping was because it was accelerating too fast, so if there was a second set of slower wheels behind the faster ones, it would probably slip less (but weigh more)

Vor year
EV Components Review (De-bodgery)
EV Components Review (De-bodgery)

The amount of time for acceleration is too short. You need to speed the ball along twice or 3 times. Each step accelerates them a bit more. I bet your wheels surfaces are moving at 2-3X more speed than the ball. There's just not enough time for the balls to match wheel speed.

Hey what if you had multiple rows of spinners that each progressed in speed? The ball would enter through the first row of spinners that are slow enough to not shred the ball; now the ball is already moving as it proceeds to the next line of spinners that are faster than the previous spinners and since the ball is already moving fast there should be less friction and still allow for the ball to go even faster. I dono how many rows of spinners you'd need but I feel like this would work?
