Abstract

The high wear rate of machine tools led to huge loss of material, requiring labor, downtime and replacement costs of worn out parts. A Thresher blade is a mechanized agricultural tool popularly used to save time, human effort and fuel in separation of grains form crops. However under complex abrasive environments, Thresher blades are subjected to extreme surface wear, particularly in dry and wet crop weed, which considerably affects its service life. The aim of this study was to improve the service life of the Thresher blade in order to cut the idle time required to replace the blade periodically during cutting. The wear type seen in agriculture thresher blade is abrasive wear, In order to increase the wear resistance of this material. we used ordinary Mild Steel, EN42 and stainless steel 316. The existing blade which is generally made by EN 42 or mild steel material those are less resistive to abrasion as Compare to stainless steel 316. The Research deals with the wear problem faced in Agriculture equipment especially machining tools.
