DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF MINI HYDRAULIC PRESS MACHINE
Here we are fabricating the model for press operation and it’s known as hydraulic press machine. Hydraulics is a topic in applied science and engineering dealing with the mechanical properties of liquids. Fluid mechanics provides the theoretical foundation for hydraulics, which focuses on the engineering uses of fluid properties. In fluid power, hydraulics is used for the generation, control, and transmission of power by the use of pressurized liquids, here our system to making of pressing operation. The hydraulic press depends on Pascal’s principle: the pressure throughout a closed system is constant. At one end of the system is a piston with a small cross-sectional area driven by a lever to increase the force. Small-diameter tubing leads to the other end of the system.
This project is designed with
• Hydraulic bottle cylinder
• Pressing tool
Here we are placing the hydraulic bottle cylinder on the based plate, and the pressing tool is fixed in the hydraulic piston rod end. The working table is placed on the top of the supporting frame. It can be adjusted according to the workpiece height by adjusting the lock nuts which is placed at the either side of the work table. The hydraulic bottle cylinder is working with the help of supply of oil from the pumping rod side. Here we have to tighten the pressure relief valve then to start pumping with help of pumping rod by pumping, the oil will supply to push the piston upward direction by this pressing tool will move through it to pressing the workpiece. By the completing the bending process we have to release the pressure relief valve then the piston comes it original position.
• Quite simple
• Easy maintenance
• Low cost
• Getting very tired when continuous process
Used in small and large scale industries and cable wire making industries etc..,
