Content / Material
We will explain how the assembly process of the trolley chips works
Create the 3D-CAD-models and the drawings
Detailed Design requirement will be provided
Create a documentation and a presentation. Print the parts, assemble and test it. If all requirements are fulfilled, it is a good design
Find out why the assembly module does not function properly and improve the design if necessary
How to use it
Play the video and give the document to the students
Create a concrete timeline with tasks and dates together with the students
Let the students design the assembly module
Evaluate the documentation and the presentation. Check the function of the machine and the drawings. Give group and individual feedback and grades
The objective of the module
The Students shall design the assembly module of the trolley chip assembly station.
They have to manage a design process in an international team. They shall use creative design methods to come up with new solutions. They have to evaluate the different design solutions and decide which one shall be further detailed. Then they have to create 3D-CAD-models and drawings. The models shall be produced with a 3D-printer. At the end the assembly module can be assembled and tested.
The students shall also create a documentation of their design process and hold a presentation to show their results.
Target group for this module are mechatronic or design students
(EQF 4 to 5)
Prior to this module, the student must be able to use a 3D-CAD-Software and create technical drawings.
For possible solutions get in touch (for teachers only)
Student Learning Module: “My personalized trolley chip”
The Omega Group will design and manufacture a trolley chip assembly station. The parts will be designed from an international team of design companies from different European countries. After the design is finalized, the parts will be printed with a 3D printer in each company. Then the printed parts will be assembled together with the purchased parts and the PLC-program will be written, implemented and tested.
The idea of the trolley chip assembly station is, that the customer can create with an app on his smart phone his personalized version of a shopping cart trolley chip. The chip will be assembled out of two components, the bottom part and the insert. The customer can select the bottom part in different colors and the insert with different colors, designs or logos.
The chip will then be assembled based on the selection the customer made in the app. With this model the Omega Group will simulate an assembly on demand process. The customer is linked with his smart phone over the internet to the assembly station in the factory and can manipulate and start the assembly process. This is a part of industry 4.0.
