Abstract

The paper presents the conceptual and functional design of a novel machine used to create chamfers on wooden beams and called RCT. The authors show, in this paper, the technical problem and the technical specifications used to design a machine to solve the problem. The novelty of the patented invention is based on its originality and usefulness. All claims of the invention are underlined by the novelty and innovation. In this paper, the steps performed to design the proposed machine are discussed in details. The chamfering process is performed using disc saws and the machine is moved on the wooden beam using rubber wheels. This machine uses four disk saws to create chamfers on wooden beams. The particularity of this machine is the possibility to use two or four disk saws for chamfering two or four edges. The market's needs allow us to design a novel machine with original motion and manufacturing process giving a big impact to creativity and innovation in design for manufacturing.
