The purpose of this project is to therefore design a simple, easily operated pneumatic sheet metal cutting and bending machine that is sturdy and strong.

The air already present in the cap end side is pushed out of the cylinder. The sheet metal is either again inserted for further cutting in case of large pieces; the small cut pieces are removed and the next sheet is inserted to cut.

Merits- 1. Hydraulics present certain advantages over pneumatics, but in a given application, pneumatic powered equipment is more suitable, particularly in industries where the factory units are plumbed for compressed air.

Moreover, to avoid corrosive actions, oil or lubricants are added so that friction effects can be reduced. Compressed air is used in most of the machines and in some cases compressed carbon dioxide, whereas cutting process is become easy.

Fast cutting action is carried out. Cutting without bending is achieved. They also have internal movable parts. Photovoltaic steps per revolution and these circuitry offer technology combined with rechargeable lead 10, steps per revolution or even more.

When two dissimilar metal plates are immersed in acid Specification of DC Motor they create a voltage. One battery cell produce 2. Fig 5: DC Motor I.

Battery i. By one of several methods, an air compressor forces more and H.

DC Motor more air into a storage tank, increasing the A stepper motor is an pressure. When tank pressure reaches its electromechanical device which converts upper limit the air compressor shuts off. The discrete electrical pulse into discrete compressed air, then, is held in the tank until mechanical movements. The shaft or spindle called into use. The energy contained in the of a stepper motor rotate at equal angle of compressed air can be used for a variety of increment called steps when electrical applications, utilizing the kinetic energy of command pulses are applied to it in the the air as it is released and the tank proper sequence.

The sequence of the depressurizes. When tank pressure reaches applied pulse is directly related to the its lower limit, the air compressor turns on direction of rotation of motor shaft and its again and re-pressurizes the tank. Stepper motors with steps of 12, 24, powered compressors. The power of a 72, , and per revolution are compressor is measured in HP Horsepower available resulting in angle of the shaft and CFM cubic feet of air per minute.

Special micro-stepping circuitry is compressed air "in reserve" is available. The piston is used in remote areas with problematic connected to the moving cutting tool. It is access to electricity. They are noisy and used to cut and bend the small size of the require ventilation for exhaust gases. The machine is portable in size, Electric powered compressors are widely so easy transportable.

There are pneumatic double tank shapes are: Depending on a control valve and the timer unit is used. The size and purpose compressors can be arm from the compressor enters to the flow stationary or portable.

The controlled air from the flow control valve enters to the solenoid valve. The function of solenoid valves all of air correct time interval. 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.

Next the same procedure repeats to bending machine operation. Fig 6: Air Compressor IV.

The range of the cutting and bending thickness can be increased by arranging a high pressure compressor and installing more hardened blades. This machine is advantageous to small sheet metal cutting and bending industries as they cannot afford the expensive hydraulic Fig 7: Working Model of sheet metal cutting and bending machine.

It can be made rack and pinion operated Materials and Processes in or spring and lever operated, by replacing Manufacturing, Eighth edition, , the pneumatic circuit by rack and the pinion Prentice Hall of India Pvt Ltd. Mahadevan, Design Data and nut arrangement. The place where there is scarcity of the electricity the electric motor operate compressor is replaced by an I. Engine installed compressor. In this machine, compressed air is used to move the cutting tool for carrying out cutting operation.

After the completion of the cycle the air moves out through the out port of Solenoid valve.

This air is released to the atmosphere. In future the mechanism can be developed to use this air again for the working of cylinder. Thus in future there are so many modifications, which we can make to survive the huge global world of competition. Addition calculations should be performed as well by using design data hand book using some relations between cylinder and pressure we can accurately find out bending and buckling of tie rod. In one extreme spool position, portA is open to port B; the flow path through the valve is open.

In the other extreme,the large diameter of the spool closes the path between A and B; the flow path isblocked. A two-way directional valve gives an on-off function. Flow path open and Flow path closed. Here we are using high speed steel blades to cut the sheet metal.

Stainless steel: The three most common stainless steel grades available in sheet metal are , , and Grade is the most common of the three grades. It offers good corrosion resistance while maintaining formability and weldability. Available finishes are 2B, 3, and 4.

Note that grade is not available in sheet form. Grade offers more corrosion resistance and strength at elevated temperatures than It is commonly used for pumps, valves, chemical equipment, and marine applications.


Grade is a heat treatable stainless steel, but does not offer as good corrosion resistance. It is commonly used in cutlery. The only available finish is dull.

Each process is capable of forming a specific type of cut, some with an open path to separate portion of material and some with a closed path to cut out and remove that material. By using many of these processes together, sheet metal parts can be fabricated with cut outs and profiles of any 2D geometry.

However, the term shearing by itself refers to a specific cutting process that produces straight line cuts to separate a piece of sheet metal. Most commonly, shearing is used to cut a sheet parallel to an existing edge which is held square, but angled cuts can be made as well.

For this reason, shearing is primarily used to cut sheet stock into amaller sizes in preparation for other processes. Shearing has the following capabilities Sheet thickness: 0.

A typical shear machine includes a table with support arms to hold the sheet, stops or guides to secure the sheet, upper and lower straight edge blades, a gauging device to precisely position the sheet. The sheet is placed between the upper and the lower blade, which are then forced together against the sheet, cutting the material. In most devices, the lower blades remain stationary while the upper blade is forced downward.

Also the upper blade is usually angled so that the cut progresses from one end to the other, thus reducing the required force.

The knife edge and are available in different materials, such as low alloy steel and high carbon steel. The accomplishment of work requires the applicationof kinetic energy to a resisting object resulting in the object moving through adistance.

In a pneumatic system, energy is stored in a potential state under the formof compressed air. Working energy kinetic energy and pressure results in apneumatic system when the compressed air is allowed to expand. For example, atank is charged to PSIA with compressed air.

When the valve at the tank outletis opened, the air inside the tank expands until the pressure inside the tank equals theatmospheric pressure. Air expansion takes the form of airflow. To perform any applicable amount of work then, a device is needed which cansupply an air tank with a sufficient amount of air at a desired pressure.

This deviceis positive displacement compressor. What a Positive Displacement Compressor Consists of A positive displacement compressor basically consists of a movable member insidea housing. The compressor has a piston for a movable member. The piston isconnected to a crankshaft, which is in turn connected to a prime mover electricmotor, internal combustion engine. At inlet and outlet ports, valves allow air toenter and exit the chamber.

How a Positive Displacement Compressor Works: As the crankshaft pulls the piston down, an increasing volume is formed within thehousing.One of the advantages of transmittingenergy pneumatically is that energy can be controlled relatively easily by usingvalves. They are: Cost estimation of manufactured parts can be considered as judgment on and after careful consideration which includes lab our, material and factory services required to produce the required.

Conclusion 32 The compressed air comes in the rod end of the cylinder and pushes the pistons inwards. They are available in great variety including special machine for unusual requirements Maximum compression ratio may be as high as 10 per stage.

Shearing Blade- Quantity: In shearing or cutting operation as or blade descends upon the metal, the pressure exerted by the blade first cause the plastic deformation of the metal.
