Hello all,
I am new to this forum. Here I come out with this question. I am currently doing a school project which is to create a spoon vending machine. It applies the same idea as in snack vending machine with spring and motor. Right now, I am doing research on motors and totally confusing about it. I intend to use dc brushless motor and can't decide on how much power output is enough for that.Anyone has any suggestion?

Thank you all

You would ordinarily come up with a dispensing mechanism first, then work out the power requirements to drive it. It might not even need a motor if gravity driven with a solenoid latch. Or no electricity at all if mechanically powered, like old cigatrette vending machines.

Really depends on the delivery specifications and your mechanical solution to them.
