Improved Design and Analysis of Hydraulic Impact Hammer Based on Virtual Prototype Technology
The impact mechanism of the traditional hydraulic hammer is composed of the directional control valve and the main cylinder body. Due to the two parts damaged in different situation at work, the replacement of equipment resulted in unnecessary waste. Based on the design concept of virtual prototype technology, the virtual prototype model of improved hydraulic impactor was established with CATIA software and the directional control valve separated from the main cylinder body, in addition, the kinematics properties of the hydraulic impactor were simulated and analyzed by the dynamic simulation function of CATIA. The virtual prototype technology can reduce the input for the mock-up and Prototype, shorten the development cycle of the products and it is conducive to realize the optimal design or deformation design of products.
