Previous Capstone Projects

John Deere Power Systems, a worldwide manufacturer of internal combustion engine systems, is committed to relentlessly improving their products to achieve exceptional operating performance. In an effort to verify the dependability of their products, JDPS incorporates a rigorous engine testing...
Polymer matrix fiber composites have revolutionized a number of industries. Composites enjoy a high strength-to-weight ratio which makes them ideal for usage in aircraft and other weight sensitive applications. However, composites lack fracture toughness, resulting in ease of crack propagation...
Edwards Lifesciences is a worldwide leader in the production and research of cardiovascular equipment and solutions, including replacement heart valves, cannulae, and tools designed for minimally invasive heart surgery. The femoral line in their production scheme produces products specifically...
IM Flash Technologies (IMFT) manufactures NAND Flash memory--a technology used in a variety of electronic devices. NAND Flash memory is manufactured on 300 mm silicon wafers, and requires many processes to create the final product. Currently one model of their wafer placement robots is breaking...
Since being founded in 1978, US Synthetic has been an industry leader in diamond producing capabilities. In order to remain competitive in the industry, US Synthetic demands a flexible manufacturing schedule with the shortest possible lead times. One of the largest losses in US Synthetic’s...
ATK is a premier aerospace and defense company that has a long history of working with carbon fiber due to its high strength-to-weight ratio. ATK is particularly known for their advanced filament winding techniques. Filament winding is an advanced composite manufacturing process that automates the...
Detroit Diesel Remanufacturing West (DDRW) specializes in remanufacturing engine components including turbochargers. When customers’ diesel turbochargers wear out, DDRW removes the turbine assembly and reconditions it, if possible. In many cases they are unable to refurbish the turbine assemblies...
Linear Signal is an RF/microwave antenna company developing electronically steered array antennas for satellite communications. In order to produce an in-motion satellite antenna (such as one on an airliner or boat), they needed a platform that would insure that the array stayed level with the...
EyeTech Digital Systems is a leader in eye tracking technology. This technology allows a person to control the movements of a mouse using only their eyes. The effectiveness of this technology, however, is determined by the subject being in focus. If the subject moves out of range, the software is...
BD Medical is a major worldwide medical supplier. At one of their plants, they have two operators doing nearly identical tasks at two blood catheter lines. The team merged the two lines into one to allow a single operator to work both lines, reducing headcount by 50%. The layout of the two lines...
