Abstract

This study is an approach to investigate the viable impacts of Grub screw manufacturing. Due to increase in demand of grub screw in industry it leads the manufacturer to upgrade the exiting process of manufacturing the grub screw. A method and apparatus for manufacturing a screw capable of mass-producing a multiple screw bolt such as a so-called grub screw, grinding and slotting for use therein. By making the existing machine semi automatic to increase the production rate as well as to reduce the man power required for the production process. Grub screw manufacturing process consists of COLD FORGING, SLOTTING, GRINDING and ROLL THREADING. Slotting machine cuts the slot on the top of screw head. The feeding mechanism demands human effort causing slow production rate and time consuming process. To eliminate this we come up with semi-automatic bowl feeder. As similar problem is faced in the grinding process we decided to combine the slotting and grinding machine into one. This project is focused on increasing the production rate with minimal man power by consuming less amount of time compared with the existing process. For this purpose, an optimized design of existing machine is made consisting of cost effective & quality materials.
