Automatic Thermocole Cutter project is developed for the users to operate a thermo cole cutting machine automatically.
It consists of sensors, Controlling unit, driver section and relay section Gears and Motor setup and heating coil.
When the user inserts the thermo cole, the sensor senses and it sends signal to the controlling section.
The controlling section analyses the signal and accordingly it operates the sliding platform with the help of a motor. The motor has inbuilt gear setup to reduce the speed and increase the power. When the sliding platform moves forward, the thermo cole also moves forward with the platform.
A heating filament is set on the way of the thermo cole. The heating filament touches the thermo cole when it moves forward and as it is heated, the thermo cole will be cut in the desired place .
It uses PIC16F73 (28 pin Micro controller). The micro controller controls the entire operation. The micro controller program is written in assembly language.
This cutting machine reduces the man work and the operations are very accurate
