Abstract

INNOVATION IN FEED MIXING MACHINE: DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING IN INDUSTRY

Onuigbo Jude A. and Rufus Ogbuka Chime*

ABSTRACT

Innovation is viewed as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs. This is accomplished through more-effective products, processes, services, technologies, or business models that are readily available to markets, governments and society. The term “innovation” as something original and more effective and, as a consequence, new, that "breaks into" the market or society. It is related to, but not the same as, invention. Mixing machines are used in feed mills for the mixing of feed ingredients. The machine plays a vital role in the feed production process, with efficient mixing being key to good feed production. If feed is not mixed properly, ingredients and nutrients will not be properly distributed within a précised time. This means that the feed will not have even nutritional benefit and would be bad for the poultry that feed on them. Design is also a tool for innovation in mature markets where technological developments bring only marginal improvements to the end-user, and in low tech markets. Manufacturing is the production of merchandise for use or sale using labour and machines, tools, chemical and biological processing, or formulation. The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high tech, but is most commonly applied to industrial production, in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods on a large scale. Such finished goods may be sold to other manufacturers for the production of other, more complex products, such as aircraft, household appliances, furniture, sports equipment or automobiles, or sold to wholesalers, who in turn sell them to retailers, who then sell them to end users and consumers. The idea of mixing various feed materials such as grains, feed supplements and other animal feeds to produce a homogenous mix ready for dispensing for animal consumption had being part of man?s activities since the creation of man. This has always been done using crude method such as hands, sticks etc. in this recent time, the advancement in technology has brought about the use of machines to perform the same function much faster, accurate and less energy consuming. It is for this purpose that the feed mixing machine has been designed. The aim of this research are to design, model, simulate, analysis of the machine components and the sustain analysis of feed mixing manufacturing.
