Move part along curve with chaindrive in assembly

Hi!

 

New on this forum, and hope to get some tips how to solve my problem.

 

I have two set of chaindrives connected to eachother through a common axle.

The motor (which is not visible in my assembly) drives the yellow sprocket. 

The two sprockets mounted on the grey axle is attached with a keyway so when the yellow sprocket turns, the two chaindrives turns.

 

I want to attach the blue sled on the blue chain, the red sled on the red chain and then rotate the yellow sprocket so both of the sleds moves with their chains (at the same speed/ time).

 

The blue sled is going to move a rolled bar (the orange one) on the floor (glass square) a certain length and then the red sled is going to "take over" and continue to move the bar on the floor.

 

I want to make sure I´ve got the spacing between the sprockets in the short chaindrive (red) correct so the red sled takes over when the blue sled disapperes under the floor.

 

Best regards

 

Jonathan

Edit: I use IV 2012, but I also downloaded IV 2013 professional (trial) so I can use the dynamic motion.
