Simulation of Processing Tomato Fruit-Stem Separation Based on Double Crank Mechanism
In this paper, double crank mechanism is put forward to achieve separation of the processing tomato fruit-stem on the basis of analysis of the existing separation mechanism kinematic characteristics, and the rod length ratio of the desired motion characteristics has been gotten by virtual simulation platform based on ADAMS, and the rod lengths of the double crank mechanism ultimately determined are as follows, driving crank is 148mm, active crank is 178mm, link is 222mm, and driven crank is 200mm on the basis of the testing determination of the maturity processing tomato fruit-stem separation force. It is able to meet the fruit and stem separation requirements when the angular velocity of driven crank is 60r/min. It can provide a theoretical basis for engineering practice.
