Project Summary Project Information

With suffering sanitation levels in Haiti, an enterprise known as Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL) has been using toilet seat diverters make waste removal easier and decrease the risk for spreading diseases. Last year, a team built a vacuum former to facilitate the production of these diverters. However, the customer requirements for this year have changed bringing forth the need for a newer version of last years vacuum forming model.

Our task is to create a machine that can quickly and effectively produce these diverters at the customers desired rate. Not only will the speed and accuracy be taken into account, but also the ease of transportation, safety aspect, and user interface as well as a few other important details.
