Abstract

Essity commissioned Olivet Senior Design Team #9 with the creation of a device that will expedite the roll change time on Machine #515 while maintaining the safety standards that Essity has set forth. The current process is manual, with inefficiencies due to operators entering and leaving the machine area along with a slow manual cut time. Our goal is to optimize this process with the addition of a new process and/or devices. The solution provided to Essity was the addition of a lowering device and a cutting device which were to be used alongside an existing piece of equipment on Machine #515.
