Design and Optimization of a Shearing Machine Using FEA

Satish Bahaley, Rasika Khairkar


Shearing is the process to cut sheets using pair of blades, by applying shear stress along the thickness of the sheet. Shearing happens by extreme plastic deformation followed by breaking which propagates deeper into the thickness. The upper blade is fixed to the ram assembly that moves vertically and lower knife is fixed in the stationary table. This project is rooted on the necessity of industry to develop a shearing machine for cutting 5mm thick stainless steel sheets. In this project we will design a CAD model of shearing machine and analyze using FEA technique.
