Abstract
This report is a result of a Master Thesis project in mechanical engineering by Niklas Henriksson. It was done at Edenhall from September 2010 to May 2011.
Edenhall has the past fifty years developed and manufactured bet harvesters. Vibrat-ing plows have long been the most common plow type as it can handle the most working condition. However this plow type has always been expensive in mainten-ance and wear parts. The self proper wheel plow has been available as option for many years with less maintenance and fewer wear parts as pros, however, this plow is only suited farmers with relatively light soil. Recently, a number of European com-petitors introduced a driven wheeled plow with combined advantages of both wheel- and vibrating plows.... (More)
This report is a result of a Master Thesis project in mechanical engineering by Niklas Henriksson. It was done at Edenhall from September 2010 to May 2011.
Edenhall has the past fifty years developed and manufactured bet harvesters. Vibrat-ing plows have long been the most common plow type as it can handle the most working condition. However this plow type has always been expensive in mainten-ance and wear parts. The self proper wheel plow has been available as option for many years with less maintenance and fewer wear parts as pros, however, this plow is only suited farmers with relatively light soil. Recently, a number of European com-petitors introduced a driven wheeled plow with combined advantages of both wheel- and vibrating plows. Therefore is Edenhall interested to explore and possibly develop a driven wheel plow adapted to their machines.
A competitor analysis was carried out to examine the existing solutions available on the driven wheel plows. The existing wheel plow was examined in detail in order to get as much data as possible in terms of mechanical influences as well as working geometry. Subsequently, requirements and desires were decided with the help of staff at Edenhall, on what a new wheel plow should be able to handle. The work has been managed as a development project in which Ulrich and Eppingers development me-thodology has been used where it was appropriate, such as concept development and concept evaluation. The work has not had a straight line in all phases but as and when new information was concluded and the details were changed, some back steps needed to be done. It was with some loss of time but probably with a better result as effect.
The final result is a powered three-row wheel plow that is directly interchangeable with previous systems, with a low number of components and integrated protection against soil solid stone. (Less)
