Mechanical 7 - Residue Removal


Student Team: Cooper Amsberry, Peter Auerbach, Travis Dreyfoos, Tim McCall
Advisor: Michael Keegan
Sponsoring Organization: Goodrich Corp.
Liaison: Chris Shogan

    Goodrich Corporation is a company outside of Spokane that manufactures brake disks for commercial airplanes.  A residue, requiring removal, accumulates on the disks as a side-effect near the end of the manufacturing process, which has thus far been only removed by hand. Our team was entrusted with designing and building a machine that automatically removes this residue from the disks faster the manual process.  The machine has been designed to clean a wide variety of disk types, diameters and thicknesses.   The disks are advanced through fixed, rotating, cylindrical brushes that clean the residue deposits on the disk faces.
