Design And Development In Self Centering Vice For Friction Welding Machine
AbstractThis paper deals with the designing a self-Centering vice for Friction Welding Machine. Friction welding is a solid-state welding process that generates heat through mechanical friction between work pieces in relative motion to one another, with the addition of a lateral force called "upset" to plastically displace and fuse the materials. The self- centering vice is use for holding a non-rotating job during a welding operation. In industry vice used has some limitations like stroke of vice and slippage between job and holding tool. As Stroke of Vice is limited which results into increase in tooling cost of bowl for various dimensions. The stroke of the vice is increased by increasing bore length of cylinder block which results into cylinder block come closer than previous clamping position. Analysis is conducted for bore length of cylinder block.
