The design and Manufacturing, along with
the analysis of the Progressive press tool, are designed
primarily to carry out the operation on the sheet metal
components. This is one crucial phase in sheet metal
manufacturing. The components are manufactured
using piercing, punching, and blanking processes, which
have high dimensional accuracy; therefore, most
industries depend on the press tool. The top connection
strip is a part that is used in the connection of the
electrode of capacitors in series to get the more output
voltage or current generally, this type of series
connection of capacitors are used in PFC (power factor
correction) sectors for controlling power factors in
industrial plants, electricity department substation, etc.
The top connection of the capacitor is a sheet metal
component made up of high purity copper material.
Hence, based on the high production requirement of the
same, an advanced tool for the Manufacturing of the top
connection is needed. The project work consists of the
design and Manufacturing of the progressive tool, the
sequence of operations is planned initially, and then the
press tool is designed. The design will make in
AUTOCAD 2016, and solid modeling in Solid edge.
