How a hammer mechanism works
Part (A) shows the basic position of the hammer mechanism. By turning the upper notched plate, it is lifted from the lower one, thus tensioning a spring in the upper part of the machine. (B)
Further turning of the upper notched plate will cause a release of the saved spring energy. This spring energy is directly converted into kinetic energy. As a result, the drill will move forward, like being hammered while turning.
Using this technique, you can achieve a hammering frequency of up to 200 strikes/second easily.
Any questions or suggestions? Feel free to comment on this.
