Course description

In Introduction to Mass Customization Using Adjustable Bolted Connections, you'll learn ...

  • How to apply the concept of “mass customization” as it relates to the manufacture of complex machinery
  • What “mass customization” means at varying production volumes
  • How to deliver machines faster and smooth production peaks and troughs
  • Sizing of systems

Length: 19 pages

This course is aimed at mechanical engineers responsible for the design of large or complex machines who are interested in learning how mechanical connection design influences production modularity. This course will be of particular interest to:

  • Designers of specialty material handling systems such as conveyors, paint lines and work-step machines for the automobile, mining, package handling and food production industries,
  • Special vehicle producers,
  • Designers of large testing equipment with high performance demands, and,
  • Manufacturers of capital equipment

The use of proprietary mounting channels and matching t-bolts to join or mount components or sub-assemblies inside these machines, instead of welding or the use of traditional fasteners such as hex-bolts is presented.

This method of mechanical connection allows machine builders to offer a customized end product, from one design, to a wider range of clients who likely have differing requirements. In this course, five examples are given in which manufacturers have used adjustable mounting channel to offer their clients a customized design more efficiently and with lower cost.

While no prior study is required to take this course, a background in machinery design is assumed.
