Real Skills Education MECHANICAL DESIGN PROJECT

design collaboration

Students Aishwarya Sahu, Briscoe Kerferd, Jin Park, Jason Sengmany and mentor, Julien Seno.

A recent partnership between Aquamonix, Real Skills Education and the University of New South Wales has given full voice to our values of Collaboration and Simplicity. The project was devised by Aquamonix to assist a customer in far North Queensland.

Temperatures on site have been known to reach 50 degrees Celsius (in the shade) so our goal was to decrease the site installation time frame, minimising safety hazards from potential dehydration and heat exhaustion.  The team’s objective was to devise a simple, lightning-fast and cost effective method to attach an Aquamonix stainless steel Smartbox enclosure to a 50mm post.

The team devised four potential designs and selected their final design based on cost and simplicity.  They used Inventor and the UNSW’s 3D printer to prototype their design.  Their final solution will be adopted by Aquamonix.

Thanks everyone for the great collaboration!
