Murugadass Project

  2. 2.   The project focuses on the optimization of the weight of a C Frame Hydraulic Power Press using ANSYS and PRO/E. The need for the project is that with heavy cost cutting going on, on every aspect of production companies, it is essential to reduce the cost of manufacturing a component or a machine by properly calculating the amount of material used to manufacture it. Here in this case, the material weight used to manufacture the frame of the C Frame Hydraulic Power Press is reduced by analyzing the power press by applying load on it virtually with all the boundary conditions in place. Then by calculating the deflection and stress on every part of the power press, the material weight is reduced by reducing the thickness of the frame and the thickness of the bed. Then finally with constant deflection and stress in mind, the weight reduction is stopped. Then the weight before analysis and after analysis is calculated and the difference is observed. Then the cost saved is calculated and the graphs for the observed values are plotted out.
  3. 3. PRESS TOOLS <ul><li>Press machines and press tools are considered as a back bone of the modern machine shop of large industry set up, producing wide variety of articles such as vehicle bodies, electrical accessories and furniture. At high production rate. </li></ul><ul><li>Wide variety of machines are built because of the growing typical demand, expansion and progress. Press working does not involve heating of part, close and high surface finish can be obtained on the part. Press work parts do not require any machining also. </li></ul>
  4. 4. POWER PRESS <ul><li>Power press are used for producing large quantities of articles quickly, accurately and economically from the cold working of mild steel and other ductile materials. The components produced range over an extremely wide field and are used throughout industry. </li></ul><ul><li>It is also necessary to plan the operations to reduce scrap material to a minimum and to use waste material for other smaller pressings. For any operations to be performed on press, the selection of the proper press and the design of the tool or die to be mounted on it are very important. </li></ul>
  5. 5. PRO/ENGINEER WILDFIRE <ul><li>Pro/Engineer wildfire is a powerful program used to create complex designs with a great precision. We can use the powerful tools of Pro/Engineer wildfire to capture the design intent of any complex model by incorporating intelligence into the design. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>To make the design process simple and quick, generally a design process consists of the following steps </li></ul><ul><li>Sketching using the basic sketch entities. </li></ul><ul><li>Converting the sketch into features and parts. </li></ul><ul><li>Assembling different parts and analyzing them. </li></ul><ul><li>Documentation of parts and the assembly in terms of drawing views. </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing the final part and assembly. </li></ul>
  7. 7. ASSEMBLY MODELLING <ul><li>An assembly is defined as a design consisting of more than one component bonded together at their respective working positions. These assembly designs are created in the assembly mode of Pro/Engineer. </li></ul><ul><li>Top-Down Approach: </li></ul><ul><li>This is the method of assembling the components in which the components of the assembly are created in the same assembly file. In this type of approach of assembly, the components are created in the assembly file and then assembled using the assembly constraints. The parts we create in the assembly mode are saved in .prt files. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>BBottom-Up Approach: </li></ul><ul><li>This is the method of assembling the components that are created as separate parts in the part mode and are saved as .prt files. Once all the parts of an assembly have been created, we create a new assembly file (.asm) and then assemble constraints available in the assembly mode to create the assembly. Since the assembly file has information related only to the assembling of components. This file is not very heavy and therefore requires less hard disk space. </li></ul><ul><li>Here in this project we are using Bottom-Up Approach </li></ul>
  9. 9. ANSYS <ul><li>  ANSYS is a large-scale multi-purpose finite element computer program , which may be used for solving several problems. The analysis capabilities of ANSYS include the ability to solve </li></ul><ul><li>static and dynamic structural analysis </li></ul><ul><li>steady state and transient heat transfer problems </li></ul><ul><li>static or time varying magnetic analysis </li></ul><ul><li>various types of field and coupled field applications etc. </li></ul>
  10. 10. PERFORMING A STATIC ANALYSIS <ul><li>The procedure for a static analysis consists of these tasks: </li></ul><ul><li>Build the Model </li></ul><ul><li>Set Solution Controls </li></ul><ul><li>Set Additional Solution Options </li></ul><ul><li>Apply the Loads </li></ul><ul><li>Solve the Analysis </li></ul>
  11. 11. ELEMENT TYPES <ul><li>Different types of elements are used for analysis. On meshing a continuum, it is divided in to small elements and these elements are solved to obtain the described solution. The various types of elements are listed </li></ul><ul><li>Line </li></ul><ul><li>Triangular </li></ul><ul><li>Quadrilateral </li></ul><ul><li>Parallelogram </li></ul><ul><li>Rectangular prism </li></ul><ul><li>Hexahedron </li></ul>
  12. 12. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM <ul><li>Here a ‘C’ framed power press is taken into consideration, and in this project we consider punching operation. While punching, the Ram has to travel from the punch holder to the die block. So in this operation, due to the ram speed and force, some deflections are undergone in the structure. </li></ul><ul><li>Here we are going to consider the deflections and stresses in the structure and minimize the material wherever there is no deflection and stress. Hence this reduces the weight of the power press and minimizes the cost of the production. </li></ul>
  13. 13. SOURCE OF THE PROJECT <ul><li>The source of the project is from the company, BHARATH PRESSINGS, Pvt Ltd, Chennai. The dimensions and specifications of a 10 tonne capacity press are obtained from this company. The manufacturer of the C framed power press is BEMCO PRESSES, Pune </li></ul>
  14. 14. NEED OF THE PROJECT <ul><li>Standard C-Frame presses bring hydraulic precision and control to most pressroom applications including punching, blanking, coining, forming, bending, drawing and assembly work. The C- frame press is considered because of its high rigid frame construction and also the maintenance cost of the press is less compared to other. </li></ul><ul><li>For economical production of quantities of pressings, consideration has to be given to the rate of production, the cost of the press tools to be employed and the expenditure involved in setting them. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>In most of the presses there are some excess materials where no stress is acting there. This increases the material weight and cost for the manufacturer. So these materials should be removed to reduce the material usage to increase the profit for the manufacturer. </li></ul>
  16. 16. METHODOLOGY <ul><li>First the dimensions and specifications for a C framed power press is taken from a manufacturer. </li></ul><ul><li>Using the specifications and dimensions a C framed power press is modeled in pro/E. </li></ul><ul><li>Model is imported to Ansys package for analysis. </li></ul><ul><li>The static load condition is considered for analysis. </li></ul><ul><li>As per the specifications the load is applied on the ram and the deflections and stresses acting on the structure are calculated. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>According to the analysis results, the materials can be removed as the defections are less in certain areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Again an analysis is made to the modified press, so that the deflections and stresses underwent by this modified one is same as that of the original model. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally the stresses and deflections of the presses are compared. </li></ul>
