Design & Simulation of Auto Paper Cutting Machine Using Geneva Mechanism

Here we propose the design and simulation of a fully automated paper cutter based on geneva mechanism. Our proposed system cuts paper pieces of equal lengths based on geneva mechanism. System uses a 12V motor in order to drive the entire system. We use a shaft which is directly connected to the motor. This shaft has a connecting rod which is connected to a scissor in order to drive the cutting mechanism for cutting paper. This motor shaft is connected to a sprocket which is in turn connected by a chain to another sprocket. This sprocket is now connected to a genava mechanism wheel. This wheel is used to drive paper feed into the cutter mechanism. Here we use geneva mechanism driven by another connecting z shape rod. This mechanism ensures paper feed of equal length inserted at proper time intervals. System uses a supporting frame that maintains proper coordination between feed and cutting mechanism.
