Georgia Institute of Technology ME 4182 - Capstone Design
Our group wanted to make a device that could automatically wrap and band silverware in paper napkins. In restaurants, these bundles are made by hand by the waitstaff in the off hours and is a tedious and time-consuming process. We aimed to create a device that would wrap reliably and autonomously. There are products on the market that perform this function, but they are large and expensive; we aimed to create a device that was both small and affordable so that smaller restaurants might consider purchasing one
This is a working prototype, the product of 3 months of work. It is far from devoid of kinks, but showcases the validity of our wrapping method and that with a few revisions, a marketable version can be created.
