Achievement of Automatic Copper Wire Elongation System
AbstractCopper wire is a major conduction material that carries a variety of signals in industry. Presently, automatic wire elongating machines to produce very thin wiresare available for manufacturing. However, the original wires for the elongating process to thin sizes need heating, drawing and then threadingthrough the die molds by the manpower before the machine starts to work. This procedure repeatsuntil the wire threads through all various die molds. To replace the manpower, this paper aims to develop an automatic wire die molds threading system for the wire elongation process. Three pneumatic grippers are designed in the proposed system. The first gripper is used to clamp the wire. The second gripper fixed in the rotating mechanism is to draw the heated wire. The third gripper is used to move the wire for threading through the dies mold. The force designed for drawing the wire can be adjusted via the gear ratio. The experimental results confirm that the proposed system can accomplish the wiredies mold threading processin term of robustness, rapidness and accuracy. View Full-Text
