Statusbedömning och förbättringsförslag för startkedjemaskineri, startkedja och linspel för stränggjutningsmaskin
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
The main goal with the master thesis has been to do a status evaluation of the chain machinery with its start chain and wire to secure the production on a short basis due to that a reconstruction is not planned at this time. An evaluation of the condition of the start chain and the rollers in the chain depository has been done. An offer has been requested for a new start chain and the evaluation of the start chains may be a basis for the decision taking. The production has been able to go on, although it has arisen some problems which have been difficult to find the causes for. There is no gathered “picture” of the machinery status and a mapping of each machinery has been compiled of comprehensive logs. Observations and measurements have also been done to prove and elucidate the biggest problems.
After the compilation a concentration has been done of the two most frequently problems during the last years, that is to say, 2006 to 2008. The work has finally fallen into suggestions for improvements of routines and suggestions for concepts for construction changes to keep a continuous stable production until a bigger reconstruction will be made.
The two problems which have been focused on were the “limit-switches” for the wires and the heat-radiation-shields situated under the tilt bridges. The arrangement for the wire problem shown to be quite simple to implement and its cause was due to that the friction was to big in the shackle, which function is to be pressed down by the wire, and thereby didn’t trigger an alarm on the computer screens.
To prevent this, lubrication was done for respective shackle to sustain the production for a short period of time. Although there have been done some concepts to sustain the production for a longer period of time.
The problems concerning the heat-radiation-shields under the tilt bridges can be solved mainly by changed maintenance routines, which have been attached in the list which has been formed.
