Abstract

Steel and iron are the building blocks with which we construct our world. From buildings to machines to transportation the use of these materials can be found in all aspects of life. In their crude form they do not have much use, so manufacturers standardize various shapes and sizes to create usable resources. These include bars, rods, beams, sheet, and angle iron. The team made up of three engineering students Jake Burns, Jason Robertson, and Alex Welling is working with a company called Peddinghaus. Peddinghaus produces equipment and machines to process steel and iron in their standard forms, such as in the case of this project angle iron. Angle iron starts as an inaccurate and roughly finished material with loose tolerances. In manufacturing and construction accuracy is vital. The company, Peddinghaus, is asking the team to improve their design so they can better process the rough angle iron into precisely sized pieces. The current design uses a measuring wheel to measure the linear length of the material, but the current design is inaccurate and inconsistent. The team is proposing a guide arm design that will meet all the design requirements of Peddinghaus, and provide a consistently accurate measurement.
