Design and Simulation of Emulsion Winch Based on Virtual Prototype
Aiming at the actual requirement of hauling hydraulic support along coalface, this paper presents a novel hydraulic winch powered by emulsion and detailedly designs mechanical transmission system and hydraulic control system. Based on virtual prototype, the 3-D model of the designed emulsion winch is built by Pro/E software, and interference simulation is carried out. In order to prove strength requirement of key component, the drum is analyzed by means of finite element analysis method and ANSYS software, and the maximum stress is obtained which less than the allowable stress. All this provides theoretical basis for the optimal design of emulsion winch.
