Development of a material handling system for catheter manufacturing process

Shahri, Norsyarizan (2010) Development of a material handling system for catheter manufacturing process. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.



In this thesis, a systematic approach to design and develop a model of a stripping handling system for a urological latex folex catheter tube manufacturer. The design is based on Design and Development Standard Karl Ulrich Steven Eppinger and Boothroyd Dewhurst Design for Manufacturing and Assembly Methodology. The system applies programmable Logic Controller to control all the switches from main control panel or Human Machine Interface. The output of the system is the movement of actuators that strip out the Catheter tube from the former or mold with respect to the pneumatic system. The measurements of the performance also being analyze by calculating the design efficiency. The resulting generalized model is validated through computer simulations and experimental analysis of variance with parameters such as hot water dipping temperature, distance between gripper to table and gripper pressure to material on working prototype.
