Automated Wire Stripper
MetadataShow full item record
For our groups ENT 498 Senior Design Project we decided to design and build an automated wire cutter and stripping machine. Our final machine can automatically feed, cut and strip wires to a given length and quantity. Our end goal was to have a functional machine that was not only reliable and budget friendly but also easy to use and aesthetically pleasing. The main motivation behind this project was to eliminate the need for a person being required to hand measure, cut, and strip large quantities of wires. With our machine, they can input their desired parameters through an onboard HMI and then let the machine do the tedious and repetitive work. This automated task frees up a worker and allows for a huge increase in productivity, thus making it a very valuable asset in industry. In order to make this project successful, we had to rely on what we have learned through our academic and professional careers, as well as teach ourselves some new concepts along the way. This project was a huge milestone for our academic careers and gave us invaluable insight to what we may be doing in the workforce after we graduate.
