Design, Fabrication and Analysis of Special Purpose Machine for Drilling and Riveting Operation
Most of the manufacturing industries are going for automation to increase the productivity and to overcome shortage of skill labour. The purpose of this paper is to reduce the cycle time by replacing drilling machine and riveting machine by special purpose machine(SPM) for drilling and riveting operation. The concept is that the plate having different size and thickness are drill on drilling spindle first and then riveted on orbital riveting spindle. Both the operation performs on same machine having two separate spindles. In this paper gives the detail information of design, fabrication and analysis of special purpose machine and compare the cycle time with conventional method. This machine is containing automation by using pneumatic system. Modeling is done using CAD software and analysis by FEA tool. The design is analysed for induced stress on work piece due to various load condition.
