Dynamical Simulation Analysis and Experimental Study on a New Sugarcane Cutting Device
The cutting stiffness has notable influence on the sugarcane cutting quality, so great importance should be laid on enhancing the cutting stiffness when designing the cutting device. Based on cutting mechanism analysis, this paper proposes a new design of cutting device to increase the cutting stiffness by properly adding an auxiliary support bar and builds up 3D model of it. Then combining of virtual simulation analysis and physical experiment, it compares and analyzes the different stiffness and cutting quality with support bar in various support position or without it. The result shows that the new design with properly mounted support bar can raise 15.30% of the cutting stiffness, and consequently improve the sugarcane cutting quality distinctly.
