Norton, Robert L.
This Gillette sponsored project developed an improved process to assemble cartridges to the handles of disposable razors. CAD models and prototypes were used to evaluate the feasibility of preliminary designs. The final design consists of a continuously rotating disk with attached cartridge assembly linkages. The cartridges are driven through the proper motion by a stationary cam and assembled to handles moving linearly on a conveyor. The final assembly mechanism was developed in Pro/Engineer and evaluated using Pro/Mechanica. The final design has potential for high assembly speed and low part breakage.
