Abstract [en]

During the spring of 2014, Johan Kooiker and Kashira Roil Beto, students in mechanical engineering at Linnaeus University carried out a degree project together with Husqvarna construction products Sweden AB. The topic of this project was "product development" to develop an automated system for assembling cold pressed segments.

The project began with studying the current situation to get a clearer picture of the problem and finding out the requirements. The main requirements were studied and implanted in behaviour descriptions of the system. Later on ideas and concepts were generated, which then through rating and screening led to the final concept. The final concept was divided into subsystems and developed in details. The detail work included 3D cad models of unique components and selection of standard component. The final step was to build simple prototypes of the subsystems to test their functions. The prototypes of the subsystems accomplished the main requirements of the company and that led to future investment in final system.
