Chili Crusher, Gear Drive, Cam and Follower Mechanism, Sprocket Mechanism


Our main objective is to grind the chili and convert it into chili powder using manual power. The project starts with the chain and sprocket mechanism. Bicycle is provided to transmit rotary motion between two shafts where gears are unsuitable or to impart linear motion to a rod. The pinion gear in sprocket mechanism provides the rotary motion to rod. This rod incorporates a spur gear of 110 teeth connected with pinion gear of 20 teeth to provide the maximum rotary motion to another rod. This gives rotation motion to fly wheel of approx. 10kg. According to law of motion the fly wheel will rotates with high speed comparatively the force provided to sprocket mechanism because the weight and momentum of the fly wheel is more. This rod ends with the clutch for the transmission of power (and therefore usually motion) from one component (the driving member) to another (the driven member) when engaged, but can be disengaged. This clutch when engaged provides motion to another pinion gear which is in contact with spur gear. The rod connected with the spur gear provides rotary motion to cams which is a mechanical linkage used especially in transforming rotary motion into linear motion or vice-versa. It is often a part of a cylinder shaft that strikes a lever at one or more points on its circular path. This cam is used to deliver pulses of power to a steam hammer. This cylindrical hammer moves up and down and helps to crush the chilly.
