Pneumatic Operated Double Hacksaw Project
Pneumatic Operated Double Hacksaw Project report
Abstract: The objective of this work is to automate the conventional power hacksaw machine in order to achieve high productivity of work-pieces than the power hacksaw machine using a Double hacksaw blade. The operator need not measure the length of the work-piece that is to be cut. The machine feeds the work-piece with the help of a shaft, which is driven by a DC motor. A DC motor is used to bring about the reciprocating motion required for cutting the work-pieces. With the help of this multi-way power hacksaw machine, the four metal bars can be cut simultaneously to get the high-speed cutting rate and to achieve mass production for maximum profit in related companies. This project is very much useful and easy to install by the user and also the motor used will not only operate with the help of electricity but also through conventional source of energy like solar energy. Pneumatic is the branch of technology, which uses air as the primary medium for various cutting operation. Pneumatics is the medium which is used for obtaining smooth surface finish and it is economical , so that it can be used for light weight operation. There is not any adverse impacts in using pneumatic system, as the system used here is an open loop system. Pneumatic pressure is supplied through the compressed tank to the cylinder where the hacksaw is attached to other end, compressed air provides the necessary mechanical motion inside the pneumatic cylinder to perform the to and fro motion for cutting operation. There is no vibration and shock in this system because of the usage of compressed air.Controlling of this machine is as easy as it is simple ON- OFF type. The design is particularly suited to applications where the working space is constrained, Pneumatic hacksaws are useful when materials need to be cut in hazardous areas such as oil & gas refineries, chemical factories or oil rigs as well as dusty and wet environments where electric tools are not effective -Design and Fabrication of Advanced Pneumatic Hacksaw Cutting Machine.
