Stone Splitting, Hydro-Pneumatic System, ANSYS Software


On construction site it is required to cut large stone (slab) in small sizes having face cut, straight cut or angle cut. Splitting is a method for cutting the stone using a cutting blade to force the stone past an opposition cutting blade. Hydro-pneumatic system is used for cutting action. It converts small pneumatic pressure into large hydraulic pressure. This study is related to design analysis of stone splitter machine which will increase the efficiency and production of stone cutting. The design of the various components such as angle, channel, lead screw, blades, table, springs is carried out as per respective Indian Standards and analysis is done using finite element software. By using ANSYS software static analysis is carried out for various components. This machine will provide precise split-face cuts, straight cut or angle cut, on natural stones and slabs.
