In the scenario, for cutting pipes, more human effort is required and the time consumption is more. So, in order to minimize the time and labour, in this work, efforts are made to design and fabricate a four-way multi-hacksaw cutting machine. The main objective of the work is to design an efficient four-way multi-hacksaw cutting machine which suits the industrial applications like cutting thin metal bars, wood, PVC pipes, etc. The machine is designed and fabricated using the principle of slider-crank mechanism, where the slider is replaced with hacksaw. Here, a disc-type crank operates the hacksaw cutter to reciprocate in the guideway to ensure the cutting operation. The size and shape of the machine were finalized by considering the proper design and kinematic analysis. Also, the project is aimed to prepare a machine with less vibration, easy in operation and easy in mobility. The suggested machine with eight simultaneously cuts can improve the rate of cutting.
