The goal of this project was to design a better way of transporting an extruded foam product from a reel to a load head on an assembly. The problem was broken into five parts: splitting, indexing, cutting, merging and inserting. The splitting and cutting steps were already solved by the sponsor, so the team created solutions for the remaining three processes. They were solved in two subassemblies: a grabbing and indexing mechanism that provided movement to the product on a track, and a shuttle mechanism that merged the two lines of product and inserted them into the load head.
