Abstract

Presentation location: Reed Hall of Science Room 214

Propose, Design and Implement method to reclaim material from runners in the overmold cell for a specific mold set (Part number 75-004805), as well as a new end-of-arm tool (EOAT) for the actual finished parts. This will require discussion with process technician to understand the quality risks associated with regrinding material, as well as research into different methods of conveying the runner to the grinder. The team will produce: 2D AutoCAD layout drawings of the press setup, along with placement of grinder to ensure safe walkways are maintained. Design in 3D CAD software will also be needed in order to design the EOAT. It is desired to have the EOAT fabricated using CNC machining or other fabrication methods at Olivet or in ITW’s tool room.

An additional project focus or possibility: Propose, Design and Fabricate 3 EOAT’s for BMW Brackets to allow in-house production in full-automatic mode, facilitating left-hand/right-hand discrimination. Cost constraint will be based on a competing quote from one of our usual EOAT vendors, EMI. This project will require design in 3D CAD software and working with current manufacturing engineer and automation technician to understand current EOAT standards. Students with experience with CNC or other machining techniques are encouraged to participate with this project.
