Analysis and Fabrication of Frame and Cylinder of 60 Ton Hydraulic Press
Our paper deals with the implementation of “Finite Element Analysis” for analysis and optimization of ‘C’ type hydraulic 60ton press frame and cylinder. The main aim is to reduce the weight of the hydraulic presses without reducing the quality of the output. A hydraulic press is a machine using a hydraulic cylinder to generate a compressive force. Frame and cylinder are the main components of the hydraulic press. Press frame and cylinder are analyzed for optimization. Structural analysis has become an integral part of the product design. The frame and cylinder are modeled by using modeling software Creo 1.0. Structural analysis has been applied on hydraulic press frame and cylinder by using analyzing software Ansys 15.0. An integrated approach has been developed to verify the structural performance and stress strain distributions are plotted by using ANSYS software. According to the structural values the dimensions of the frame and cylinder are modified.
