Abstract: This project is on the design and construction of a solar power hacksaw machine for cutting of metal to different size and length with the help of solar hacksaw. The objective of this project is to save manpower and time, energy in cutting metals in order to achieve high productivity. It is a cutting machine with teeth on its blade used specially for cutting material. The power to the hacksaw is provided by the Solar Energy. The motor drives the flywheel connected to the shaft of the motor. The flywheel is connected through a link that transmits the required force for cutting the work piece. Finally connecting rod is connected to the vertical arm connected to the horizontal arm. Rotary motion of the shaft is converted into reciprocating motion of the hacksaw with the help of crank and connecting rod. Work piece of desired length can be cut by feeding it to hacksaw by holding it into bench vice. The various component of the machine were designed and constructed. Test was carried out on the machine using different metals. A solar panel connected to power hacksaw is considered as a solar operated power hacksaw in which sun’s energy is used to drive the hacksaw in order to cut wood, metal rod etc. A solar connected to the hacksaw converts the solar energy into electrical energy which is stored in a 12 v battery as a direct current to run the motor connected to the hacksaw .A DC motor is connected to the hacksaw which is used to give the rotary motion to the flywheel connected to the shaft of the dc motor .The energy stored in battery is supplied to the dc motor which rotates the flywheel connected to the shaft of motor. The rotary motion of the flywheel is converted to reciprocating motion which gives back-forth motion to blade of the hacksaw by a mechanism known as scotch yoke mechanism. The reciprocating motion of the hacksaw reciprocates the blade on the work piece which performs the cutting action. The work piece is clamped in a clamper to fix it. The clamper is made of cast iron or mild steel. A solar power hacksaw is a cheap and environmental friendly device that is operated without the consumption of any energy other than the solar energy .Solar energy is cheap and easily available on the earth. No heavy machines or devices are required for energy conservation. Solar powered hacksaw can be used in work shop, industries, and many fields where there is a requirement of hacksaw.
