Team Vision for Integrated System Build & Test Phase

Team goals for phase
Our team planned to order the support column for the bedside table, manufacture the table base, research quality control methods SUSPA uses in manufacturing the equipment we ordered from them, finish the tipability, breakability, and durability test plans for the table, and finalize the design for the tabletop.

Team accomplishments for phase
Base manufactured, support column ordered and received, tabletop design finalized, drawing packets and assembly instructions begun, tipability and breakability test plans completed.

Tabletop Ideas

We all created prototypes on small cardboard versions for the swivel mechanism. We ultimately decided our design considering feasibility and ease of manufacturing.

Decision Tree - Pros & Cons

Decision Tree - Pros & Cons

After we decided on a tabletop design, we made a larger cardboard prototype to verify that no other complications came up when the ideas were scaled.

Tabletop Design and Build

The final tabletop is designed to be in a retracted or expanded position.

Tabletop Laminate

Initial research about wood furnishings to apply to the tabletop surface was done here

After more research, a Formica Infiniti Laminate was chosen to be applied to the tabletop surface. Formica is a common brand used throughout medical, household, and industrial settings. Formica laminates are durable, scratch-resistant, and easily cleanable. Formica Infiniti is specifically used for medical fields as it provides an extra anti-microbial surface protection feature.

Pneumatic Support Column

The support column is a manually operated pneumatic column sourced from SUSPA.

Base Manufacturing

Hot-rolled steel was used to manufacture the base. It is a high density material that can be easily welded.

The legs of the base are made up of four steel strips that were bent 80 degrees to make the base structurally stable. Three strips were bent 90 degrees and welded together to act as the center of the base. The legs and center were welded together afterwards.
