Design and Development of Billet Sawing Machine for Improving Productivity


Background/Objectives: The objective of our research work is to increase the productivity of the billet sawing machine. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this research work we suggest some modification to the existing machine by redesigning the some parts of the auto loader, main and shuttle vice. The rod resting area and feeder area of the auto loader has been modified by raising the height of the rod resting area and also designed the feeder to hold two rods vertically. And also the dimensions of the main vice and the shuttle vice have been redesigned to hold the two rods vertically. Findings: The proposed billet sawing machine thus enables to cut two rods at the same time in order to reduce the cutting time and also could be improved 50 to 75 % (approx.) of the productivity in modern manufacturing environment than the existing machine.
