Abstract [en]

This Bachelor Degree Project report is based on the development of a tool for making chocolate chips from chocolate bars carried out in cooperation with LéKUé, manufacturer company of kitchen tools specialized in silicone and plastic products.

The aim is to develop a kitchen tool that breaks chocolate bars in small fragments, as currently there are no utensils that can efficiently solve this task.  This tool is oriented to be used at home.

The design process includes a pre-study, a concept development and final design chapters. The pre-study consists of the following parts: an evaluation of existing tools, tool testing, early idea generation and selection, chocolate bar dimension study, identification of potential consumers, study of human factors, manufacturing process selection, materials selection and requirement specifications. The concept development section is based on mechanism and aesthetics development. The last chapter presents the final design, which is the result from the combination of findings inferred in the previous parts.

A final and manufacturable product by an industrial method will be defined as result. In the results, a CAD model, photorealistic renderings and a final prototype are included.
