EFFECT OF THE EDGE GEOMETRY IN A CUTTING CHAIN ON THE CHAIN SAW VIBRATION LEVEL
Keywords: chain saw, vibrations, cutting edge geometry
Vibration levels were measured while cross-cutting pine wood logs. In the experiment five chisel type cutting chains, with a 0.325” pitch were used. The chains differed in the top-plate filing angle which had the following values: 20º, 25º, 30º, 35º and 40º. The cross-cutting was performed by a chain saw operator. The measurements were carried out on the front and rear handles in the x, y and z axes. There were 18 measurements for each top-plate filing angle on each of the handles. The Robotron M1300 meter was used. Considerably higher vibration levels were observed on the rear handle. The effect of the top-plate filing angle on the mechanical vibrations was statistically significant. The correlation between the angle and the vibration value showed a weak relation, but it was statistically significant in those cases in which it appeared.
