Hi there Guys,
I've another little problem. I now have to design the hydraulic system for my stone splitting machine. Does anyone know of any sites that have online catalogues for valves, pumps rams etc? The rams must have a joint force of 500tones.... So does that mean I can put two 250ton rams in?
My machine will work like this:1: A large rock will be placed on to the roller bed of the machine 2: The operator will position the rock for the desired cut 4: The operator will open a return valve for the conforming teeth 3: The operator will move the blade down so the teeth conform to the rock 4: The teeth will then be locked in position (by closing the return valve) 5: The blade will the be lowered to split the rock 6: The blade will then be lifted and the teeth will all extend to home position 5: The machine is now ready for another cycle
How will I do this Hydraulically?.. I have an idea of how to do it but the conforming teeth are throwing me off... it this some sort of check valve?
Thanks loads, Shay
