In the second semester of the academic year 2015/2016 I worked on the project Offshore as part of Sigma7 3.0. The objective of the project was to develop a gantry crane which could load and offload containers filled with plastic onto a cargo ship using an electromagnet. During this project we build the model displayed in the picture above. It had a wide range of functions including automatic loading and offloading. But also the option of manual operation. The system was operated using a rotary encoder and a small display. The system also had various safety features. The following video displays the main functions of the machine.
During this project my main tasks were planning, checking teksts, calculations and building mechanical parts of the machine.
