PROJECT SUMMARY
Pipeline designed a new product to facilitate the carrying of bundles of cables. The design was scaled to be produced in three different sizes.

TEAM:
Mechanical Engineer
Prototyping Vendor

DESIGN TOOLS USED:
SolidWorks 3D CAD
Photorealistic rendering
Rapid prototyping

MARKET:
Consumer Product

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

  • Convenient and comfortable to carry
  • One-way ratchet mechanism for engaging cable claw
  • Locking mechanism to prevent unintended disengagement of claw
  • Three sizes to accommodate different cable carrying capacities
  • Fastener-free assembly in smaller sizes

SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES

A local manufacturer of industrial equipment hired Pipeline to design a cable grip to compete with existing products on the market. The design needed to provide a simple means of engaging a “claw” that gripped bundles of cables of various sizes.

Pipeline developed from the ground up a design to meet the requirements, and worked with the manufacturer to produce proof-of-concept parts using rapid prototyping (3D printing) technologies. Once the design was validated, files were sent to production vendors for tooling the injection molded parts.
