Abstract

The project goal was to create a device that loads 5-gallon water bottles into water cooler dispensers, eliminating the need to manually lift the bottle. Our device incorporates a four-bar mechanism to lift a bottle from a low platform to a level above the dispenser. In a final step, the operator manually tips the bottle from its supported position, inverting the bottle to rest in the dispenser and allowing the seal on the bottle to be punctured.
