Abstract [en]

This project is about investigation and improvement of a V-plow for the company Swekip. A V- plow is used for snow removal but this product has been found to have deficiencies in its construction, breaking down and not living up to the desired objectives. This is because the product is ordered from a company in China where they have some problems with understanding the purpose of the plow.

Initially the existing plow is investigated, all the shortcomings set out and examined, what is wrong and what needs improvement?

When the solutions were done they were evaluated and examined that they actually live up to the desired requirements.

This assignment is a pure construction project where the majority is implemented in CAD, where models are developed and FE analyses are carried out. But the project also includes a feasibility study, idea study and hydraulic design.

The results are presented in the form of a CAD model and associated drawings that will serve as the manufacturing basis for the new V-plow. The finished model is based on the original plow but with many new enhancements to remedy the deficiencies the plow had.
