Advance Cam Operated Hammer – Mechanical Project
In many industries various types of machines and equipment have been used for various operations such as forging, hammering, cutting etc. But different problems such as low power supply, less man power and also heavy laborious work force, safety etc. This projects relates to operation performed by this can be achieved by either using electric motor power or by manually by means of simply rotating a hand lever attached to the shaft and hammering action can be provided. If there is good power supply it can be run automatically. For automatic operation A.C. motor is provided. Chain drive, belt drive, governor are also provided for speed control purposes so that the suitable speed can be achieved. When no electric power supply is there the advance cam operated hammer can be used manually by simply rotating the hand lever. Also the handling is simple and maintenance is easy of the project.
The advance cam operated hammer is a device which can be used for multi-purpose operations by either automatically or manually. It is mainly used for hammering of work piece. It can also be used for various purposes such as punching, forging, bending, etc. This advance cam operated hammer is very essential for doing number of such operations like crushing, riveting, hammering of larger work piece and cutting of metal.
As in forging industry, the temperature of forging operation is very much higher and it is very difficult to do manual hammering over the forging metal by manually or hand and also there is always a risk while handling such type of high temperature base metals or wok piece. So advance cam operated hammer neglects this type of problems in industry.
- The main objective of our project work is to reduce or neglect the defined problem and provide an idea to overcome various problems by fabricating the concept as well as working model which represents a solution given to the existing problem.
- So our objective is to provide an electric motor driven mechanism so that the machine can perform operations with the help of electricity and automatically. The another objective is to give manual handling attachment by means of hand lever in the same model so that without power supply the operator can perform the various hammering operations without disrupting or stopping the machine.
- Another objective of our project is to get an impact from the hammer to the work piece by using the effective way by Snail cam. So that the complicated mechanisms get neglected and cost of the system can be reduced very much.
