Abstract

Currently, the Saint-Gobain China Grinding and Technology Center in Shanghai uses a low force grinder with an accompanying fixture system to test abrasive belts. A similar system capable of higher force grinding is desired and our team was given the task of designing the high force grinder fixture. To do this, we fully constructed original designs using SolidWorks for some parts, and for others, researched industrially available components. We analyzed each element, compared with several options, and assembled a final design based on our analyses. We compiled our work and supplied Saint-Gobain with a final concept for the high force grinder fixture.
