P13712: Wegmans Bread Tray Lift Assist
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

In the Wegmans Bake Shop, trays containing finished products are stacked by hand upon a dolly for transport. This task consists of a constant manual lifting task. Wegmans identified that a component of this task was a repetitive bending and stacking motion of the operator. Wegmans saw this as an area that could be improved. The idea behind this was to somehow eliminate this repetitive bend through a device that kept height of the stack of trays at waist level, thereby eliminating the bending and improving ergonomics. The method of accomplishing this was left to the senior design team.
