PNEUMATIC PRUNING SHEARS EX1510

The product to study is a professional quality pneumatic pruning shears designed for use by tree growers and vintners. The information pack offers a real system with an original design (double pistons) which demonstrates important engineering principles. The pruning shears is an excellent model for study using CAD software, especially 3D software SolidWorks.

EX1510

PRINCIPAL TEACHING OBJECTIVES

This equipment is perfect for teaching of mechanical engineering :

Details of construction

  • General assembly

  • Modelling of links and mechanical forces

  • Study of the sub-system pre build on SolidWorks.

 

Study of the pruning shears actuator

  • Identification of the various functions

  • Study of the control system and comparison between standard and progressive types of pruning shears

  • Validation of the cutting effort

 

Commercial considerations

  • Establishment of product quality criteria

  • Review of a professional comparison between this product and its competitors

 

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

The presentation case EX1510 contains two pneumatic pruning shears. The first is completely dissembled to show the component parts. The second is assembled but sectioned to show the structure of the device and the arrangement of the double piston. The progressive kit is supplied for comparison with the standard type. The blades are ground to prevent cut risks and treated to prevent corrosion.
