Electromechanical Model of Jigsaw
Keywords:Jigsaw, Electromechanical Model, Cutting Force, Energy Optimisation
This paper studies the electromechanical model of a jigsaw mechanism. The jigsaw is powered by a battery, which drives a DC motor. The rotational motion is converted into linear motion through a Scotch Yoke mechanism. The electromechanical equations are based on energy approach using the Lagrange-equation. The Lagrange function contains the energies of the model, i.e., the kinetic co-energy of the kinematic chain and the magnetic co-energy of the inductance. As regard the non-conservative elements their virtual works are written. The formulated equations of the jigsaw model allow us to examine this force-energy relationship.
