This project demonstrates how 3D Printing enables Working Miniature Model and can integrate with Internet of Things so that it simplifies the demonstration of actual working of a traditional Cone Crusher. The entire project was approached as a full-time endeavour. Designing, Manufacturing, Assembly and Testing was undertaken by Think3D Labs, AMTZ campus, Visakhapatnam. A 3D design is designed by taking sample images and videos. Then with the help of Additive Manufacturing, Sheet Metal Fabrication, Laser Cutting and Water Jetting technologies we manufactured the various components of the model. Next task is to make it as a working prototype with the help of motors, electronics, drivers and programming.
Generally the demonstration of actual Cone Crusher is difficult to present, because of closed equipment is not possible to represent the internal working of it. The pictorial or video graphical presentation will not be an effective presentation. Thus 3D Printing helps to manufacture the prototypes of the desired size and make it functional. So with the help of cross-sectional prototype the demonstration can be made comfortable.
This report covers a broad range of engineering disciplines. The root of the system is an innovative mechanical design, manufacture and computerize for a Functional Prototype. The motors, electronics and drivers made the prototype functional whereas micro controller and programming allow for control schemes. It is anticipated that this work will be of value to a contrasting customers.
A Crusher is a machine used to disintegrate large rocks into small rocks, gravel and rock dust. It can be used to reduce the size, change the form and to differentiate the pieces of different composition. It is a process of transferring a force amplified by mechanical advantage through a material to deform. Crushers have many industrial uses in Mining, Brick and Coal industries. Different types of Crushers are Jaw crusher, Cone crusher, Compound crusher and Gyratory crusher etc.
