1.INTRODUCTIONC.E 1.1:I have successfully completed my Bachelors degree with Mechanical Engineering as myspecialization. During the period of completion, I worked on various individual as well as team projects. During the period of completion, I worked on a project which involved designing a‘Turning Device’. This project has been described in greater details in the following sections.2.BACKGROUNDC.E 2.1:The term slewing refers to turning a load on spot without changing its place. Many organizationsin the past (and some even in the current day setting) use slew rings for this purpose. A slew ring istypically employed in an assembly line where there is a need to turn heavy loads. In addition, slewrings employ an element known as bearing which is a rolling element and supports a load which isexceptionally heavy but has slow turning requirements. Besides being implemented in slew rings,other implementation scenarios include a conventional crane, windmills with a horizontal axis, aswing yarder etc. The slew bearings that are implemented are more often than not thin in sectionand are at least a meter in diameter. Further, these slew bearings are made with geared teeth thatare integrated with either the inner or outer race.Modern day organizations have quit on the usage of slew rings as most of its capacity to tackleheavy loads remains unused. Instead focus has shifted to the invention of new devices which areefficient and cost effective.C.E 2.2:Even in the current day setting, various companies use slew rings in turn tables (mainly of the typeE.650.20.C). This poses a problem of improper delivery times as the production capacities of almost all slew ring manufacturers has reached its maximum. A primary reason for this is a suddenincrease in the demand for wind mill books. Also, slew rings are typically designed to deal withexceptionally high loads. Full capacity of slew rings is often not required as the load handled isnominal and not exceptionally high. This leads to a capacity as well as cost wastage.Through this project, I have attempted to present a solution to these problems. The turning devicealthough not being capable of handling extremely high loads such as the E.650.20.C is a lot moreefficient and cheaper to implement.
In addition to presenting a solution to this problem, I tried estimating project costs andmanufacturing possibilities as these factors are extremely critical while determining projectsuccess.3.PERSONAL ENGINEERING ACTIVITYC.E 3.1:After realizing the problem and thinking about the solution, the very first step was to identify thecomponents that will be implemented in the design. While analyzing requirements, I consulted my professors and fellow students in order to make sure that I was following the right track. My primary objective while undertaking this project was to design a turning device which will be bothefficient in turning heavy loads and cost effective. For this purpose, I have implemented the usageof various components such as a superior plate which is made of Cast Carbon Steel. This plate aidsin moving the conveyor. In addition, the design consists of an inferior plate which is made up of Cast Carbon Steel as well. This plate mainly functions to absorb various forces that come into playin a turning device. Further, other components of the turning device include an axe (used to unite pieces), bearings (used for supporting axial loads); balls spare part, transport balls, nylon support,table plate, strap etc. All these components are readily available at a nominal cost in the market.C.E 3.2:There are several important components which collectively constitute the turning device. Thesecomponents are important for the successful functioning of the device. The turning device consistsof various components such as the superior plate which is made in cast carbon steel. The inner circle of this plate contains various holes that provide it the ability of being united with the upper  plate through the usage of screws. The inferior plate is also made up of cast carbon steel and the ball bearing is placed in its center. The false plate is made up of cast carbon steel as well and isdesigned to be replaced whenever required. This lowers the overall cost of the turning device. Theaxe of the turning device serves the function of holding rest of the devices together. The bearingimplemented in the turning device belongs to INA (reference REMO 40) whereas the transport balls are a commercial element of an organization called STAR. The supporting element is madeup of Nylon and is placed exactly between balls spare part and transport balls. Other importantcomponents that support construction of the turning device are table plate and strap.C.E 3.3:In order to implement this design, I began with appropriately placing the spare part required for themachine. This was followed by the introduction of transportation balls and nylon support in thespare part. This completed assembly 1 of the design. Assembly 2 of the design consisted of constructing the inferior plate. The arrangement developed in Assembly 1 of the design is correctly placed at appropriate locations. After placing these devices at their correct location, I proceeded todevelop Assembly 3. Assembly 3 consists of placing the bearing at the exact center of the inferior
