Elevator Speech

Our senior design project is part of a three team project with the end goal of creating an industrial glass cutting machine. Specifically, our fixture is a subsystem of the glass cutting machine in charge of moving the glass ingot work piece through cutting wires at a fixed speed. These glass ingots can range up to 200lbs, and must be moved as slowly as .1mm/minute. This fixture is being developed to replace an existing machine which currently cuts high volumes of glass wafers, but consumes a significant amount of power. Our machine is designed to be more energy efficient and will be used for cutting a small number of parts for flexibility in production. Future projects will work on integrating our fixture, along with two others, into one fully-functioning glass cutting wire saw machine.
