Abstract

Location: Reed Hall of Science Room 330 & Zoom(pass code: 965420)

The focus of this project will be designing an elevator system that can lift & lower structural steel shapes as appropriate between different passline levels. The device will have to integrate with Peddinghaus transfers, and would ideally integrate with a Peddinghaus conveyor line. The device would lift the piece of steel off of a conveyor/transfer, lift it to the appropriate height, and set it down on the machine with the higher passline. The device will require two movements – up/down movement, and onto/off the second transfer/conveyor system. The team will deliver a detailed design for a beam elevator system, with FEA results for any critical lifting components, as well as a scaled proof of concept prototype that provides sufficient detail to prove the functionality of the design
