Pneumatic, 3600, Flexible, Drilling


In previous drilling machine many of the problems arise during drilling. Some parts cannot drill due to small work space between drill bit and work piece. So we use hand drills in this cases but it cause alignment problems. So here we propose a 360 degree pneumatically operated flexible drilling arm that can be mounted on a table or wall and can be used to drill holes horizontally, vertically or even upside down. So this make it possible for easy drilling in even complicated parts and surfaces. The designed pneumatic arm consists of 3 actuators, a shaft works with lead screw mechanism capable of converting motion of piston to rotational motion of arm with help of using compressed air. The designed processes are carried out based on integrated information of kinematics dynamics and structural analysis of the desired robot configuration as whole. The highly dynamic pneumatic arm model can be easily set at intermediate positions by regulating the pressure using the flow control valve. As the arm is pneumatically operated so we can also use it where the electricity is not available. We will need only compressed air for doing operation.
