Abstract

A design process for linear slide mechanisms was developed and synthesized into a manual to be used as a reference by design engineers at Central Industrial Supply. The usage of conceptual design software was incorporated into the design process to enhance creativity and reduce lead time. The created design process manual was used to create and prototype a new rear lock mechanism that reduced push/pull force by 68%, while passing Central Industrial Supply's standardized durability test.
