Unformatted text preview: ME-232 Design Project ReportMotorized Ski TunerApril, 30th, 2007Submitted by:John LuffWilliam GarroColin BaterSubmitted to:Dr. Ali Razavi Division of Engineering & PhysicsWilkes University, Wilkes-Barre, PA.- 1 -PROBLEM STATEMENTThe problem is that it is difficult and time consuming for a person to tune his or her skis, and it gets expensive to have them tuned at a shop, especially if it more than once per season. ABSTRACTThe purpose of this project is to design anything that deals with the strength of materials, is useful in everyday life, and has not been invented yet. What we designed was a motorized ski tuner, which should be quicker and easier to use than a conventional ski tuner, and less expensive than taking the skis to the shop to be tuned all the time. INTRODUCTIONThe purpose of designing a ski tuner was to make tuning skis less expensive, less time consuming, and less work. The first thing we did was look at the marketability of our project by reviewing the reasons why someone would want to purchase our product over everything else out there that has already been designed. Once we determined that the project was indeed marketable we moved onto the design process. In order to achieve our design we first did some background research on how skis where tuned. Next we our design we first did some background research on how skis where tuned....
