Pneumatic Sheet cutter

INTRODUCTION:

We are using scissors fro simple sheet metal cutting. It is a manual method so that sheet metals are to be wasted sometime because of mistakes happened such as wring dimensions and also even as simple cutting may take long time. Hydraulic machines are also available for sheet metal cutting. But this method is used only for heavy metal cutting and its cost is very high. We are using a pneumatic system for sheet metal cutting in a easy way. It is operated by a pneumatic hand lever of two way control valve. Control valve is operated by a compressor.

Pneumatic Technology:

Pneumatic is a branch of engineering that makes use of gas or pressurized air. Pneumatic systems used extensively in industry are commonly powered by compressed air or compressed inert gases. A centrally located and electrically powered compressor powers cylinders, air motors, and other pneumatic devices. A pneumatic system controlled through manual or automatic solenoid valves is selected when it provides a lower cost, more flexible, or safer alternative to electric motors and actuators.Pneumatic also has applications in dentistry, construction, mining, and other areas.

MAJOR COMPONETS:

  • Pneumatic Cylinder

  • Solenoid Valve

  • Air compressor

  • Steel Blade

  • Metallic Stand

Advantages:

  • LOW COST

  • LESS CONSUMPTION OF TIME

  • EASY TO HANDLE

  • SKILLED LABOR IS NOT REQUIRED

  • LESS MAINTENANCE

  • HIGH ACCURACY

  • GOOD SURFACE FINISH

  • LESS FLOOR SPACE

APPLICATIONS:

SHEET METALS are used in various places some of them are given below:

  • CAR BODIES

  • AIRPLANE WINGS

  • MEDICAL TABLES

  • ROOFS FOR BUILDINGS AND MANY OTHER THINGS

  • SHEET METAL OF IRON AND OTHER MATERIAL WITH HIGH PERMEABILITY ALSO KNOWN AS LAMINATED STEEL CORES, AHS APPLICATION IN TRANSFORMERS AND ELECTRIC MACHIES.

Conclusion;

Now we know the pneumatic sheet cutting machine is very cheap as compared to hydraulic machine. The range of the cutting thickness can be increased by arranging a high pressure compressor and installing more hardened blades. This machine is advantageous to small sheet metal cutting industries as they can not afford the expensive hydraulic cutting machine.

Future Scope:

  • It can be made hydraulic power operated by installing the gear oil pump at the place of air compressor and pneumatic cylinder arrangement.

  • It can be made rack and pinion operated or spring and lever operated.

  • The place where there is a scarcity of the electricity the electric motor operate compressor is replaced by an IC ENGINE installed compressor.

Thus in future there are so many modifications, which we can make to survive the huge global world of competition.
