Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description: Design and Prototype Hose Reel for Forklift

Team CH will design a hose reel for forklifts that will be either a single function (two hoses) or twin function (four hoses), left-handed or right-handed model. The design will involve a modular system that utlizes a minimal number of parts to achieve a single or twin function. Further, the design will be analyzed using finite element analysis (FEA) and fluid dynamics software, as well as cycle testing of a prototype using Superior Fabrication's test platform.
