Our Project is working to design an automatic hose cutting machine that will increase the productivity of the hose cutting and coiling process. We aim to create a machine that is fully automated, has the ability to self reel, and is capable of being mobile. Some design features that have to be analyzed for this system include a feeding system, cutting method, and the ability to interface with the machine. Some constraints that will limit our design include a large range of cutting lengths, low tolerances for the resulting hose length and the diversity of hoses that the machine is required to cut.
