AUTO FEED PNEUMATIC SHEET METAL CUTTING MACHINE
To design and fabricate pneumatic based sheet metal cutting machine to be used for the cut the sheet metal of minimum thickness without manual hard work instead we use pneumatic control system to operate the cutting machine accurately. This machine can also be installed in the lab for the experiment and demonstration to engineering students. Thereby gaining the hand sum experience and knowledge on how to design and fabricate the mechanical system.

The sheet metal cutting process is a main part of the all industries. Normally the sheet metal cutting machine is manually hand operated One for medium and small scale industries. Automation in the modern world is inevitable.
Any automatic machine aimed at the economical use of man, machine, and material worth the most. In our project is solenoid valve and control timing unit is used for automation.
The sheet metal cutting machine works with the help of pneumatic double acting cylinder. The piston is connected to the moving cutting tool. It is used to cut the small size of the sheet metal.
The machine is portable in size, so easy transportable.
The compressed air from the compressor is used as the force medium for this operation. There are pneumatic double acting cylinders solenoid valves, flow control valve and the timer unit is used. The arm from the compressor enters to the flow control valve. The controlled air from the flow control valve enters to the solenoid valve. The function of solenoid valves all of air correct time interval. The 5/2 solenoid valve is used.
In one position air enters to the cylinder and pushes the piston so that the cutting stroke is obtained. The next position air enters to the other side of cylinder and pusses the piston return back, so that the releasing stroke is obtained. The speed of the cutting and releasing stroke is varied by the timer control unit circuit.
Solenoid valves are the most frequently used control elements in fluidics. Their tasks are to shut off, release, dose, distribute or mix fluids. They are found in many application areas. Solenoids offer fast and safe switching, high reliability, long service life, good medium compatibility of the materials used, low control power and compact design.
