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.
