Mechanical press complete design

Design & Engineering

CATEGORY:
Machinery Design

SCOPE:
This was the final year project I did at university, the project is complete desing of a manually operated press that features heated plates and is able to reach a specific pressure. The press works using a rack and pinion mechanism coupled with a worm gear mechanism. First the rotational motion is transfered from the handle through the worm gear mechanism to the other shaft where the rotational motion is being transferred to linear motion via the rack and pinion mechanism.

SolidWorks, KeyShot
