Subsystem Build & Test Phase

After our last design review, we realized that we started off on a good foot. We were able to get our pieces into the machine shop early and really get a lot of work done, especially with the help of the machine shop staff. The biggest issue going into this phase was waiting on pieces to come in. We wound up a little behind due to lead times that were longer than expected, but we were still able to accomplish much of the machining this phase.

Team Vision for Subsystem Level Build & Test Phase

What We Accomplished This Phase

Machining All Components (85%)

Part 005 - Load Cell Block

Part 007 - Outer Slide (50%)

We are still working to complete the steel outer slides; however, the shop made us an aluminum slide by accident. (The drawings for the slide was left behind on the shelf and they made them anyway)

Part 009 - Retainer Plate

Part 013 - Inner Slide (95%)

We are nearly done making the steel inner slides, the only thing left to do is drill the hole. Again the shop made us an aluminum one on accident.

Part 014 - Pivot Block

Part 016 - Encoder Pin

Part 024 - Clamp Pin (0%)

After some discussion, we elected to not work on the clamp pin until we receive the clamp from Morgood, as it needs to be a perfect fit and didn't want to assume that the component will be exactly what was ordered.

Morgood Components

The purchase order for the components being outsourced to Morgood were sent out in the last week of January. The lead time on those were 4-5 weeks so we are expecting those within a week or two.
